For the love of Elephants

Elephants are the focus of this short documentary, first coming into conflict with a maize farmer in Zambezi Region, who is given assistance by conservation NGO IRDNC. The film shows that elephants are an important tourist draw, bringing benefits to communities, but that they need space to move between countries in the KAZA conservation area. Conservation is shown to rest on two pillars, tourism and trophy hunting.
