"Zoologist, Filmmaker Heinz Sielmann Dies"
BERLIN (AP) - Heinz Sielmann, a German zoologist and internationally acclaimed documentary filmmaker whose works included "Vanishing Wilderness" and "Masters of the Congo Jungle," has died. He was 89.

Sielmann was best known in Germany for a 30-year-long television series called "Expeditions into the Animal Kingdom" that made him a household name.

He also collaborated with National Geographic to produce several documentaries in the 1960s and 1970s that were shown around the globe.

Sielmann completed his first film, a documentary on birds, in 1938.

In 1994, he established a foundation in Germany to promote wildlife preservation and teach children the importance of respecting nature.
