He informed via his Twitter handle that the documentary will be filmed in October. His post read: "*HUGE NEWS* I’ve landed a National Geographic documentary on the plight of the rhino in Africa. We film in October. BEYOND EXCITED!"

Pietersen was introduced to to wildlife preservation when his good friend Mark Boucher took him on a rhino tagging operation, and ever since then, Pietersen has thrown himself into various fundraising projects, working with endangered animals in Africa and India. He also set up his own company, SORAI (Save Our Rhino in Africa and India). 

It all started with branded bats, but now but has also moved into clothing merchandise online, and the profits go to different conservation charities.

Pietersen has been involved in various projects regarding protecting the species of the rhinos ever since his retirement from the game and this contract with National  Geographic now has taken his a notch higher.
