series description

Through the inspiring stories of two African environmental activists —Thuli Makama, and Hammer Simwinga—the film explores conservation and sustainable development as a viable method for safeguarding wildlife. The program also bears witness to the human rights violations inflicted on indigenous peoples whose traditional homelands are bordering wildlife conservancies.
