The Event Book is a powerful tool developed by NACSO's Natural Resources Working Group. It empowers game guards to keep track of wildlife in communal conservancies. The film shows how game guards with little formal education, but a strong knowledge of wildlife and the environment, are able to record and deal with human-wildlife conflict problems, poaching, and wildlife movement. Conservancy staff also explain why trophy hunting is an essential conservation strategy.
