PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.
Our media and educational projects are intended to impact perceptions of and motivate action by policy makers, business leaders, educators, influencers and members of the public alike. We seek to inspire active participation in the conservation and protection of wildlife and wildlife habitats.
Killing the Shepherd™
A remote community in Africa, led by a woman chief, attempts to break the stranglehold of absolute poverty by waging a war on wildlife poaching. For decades illegal wildlife poaching by both subsistence and bush meat gangs has led to the government declaring this community’s homeland “depleted” of wildlife.
The chief finds help in the form of a safari operator and they work together to bring stability to the community. But all was not well. Disease, food stability, and rampant alcoholism hamper basic needs like health care and education. Even young girls, just after reaching puberty, are sold by their parents as child brides in order to feed their family for one year. Dark forces including South African land speculators, criminal poaching gangs, and her own people conspire against the chief. Even elements from the modern world work against the chief’s wishes.
Will the chief and her community see success?
