Giving Nature A Voice: Living on the Edge of Nature
Kenya is lucky to have some of the most spectacular wildlife in the world but increasingly it’s in conflict with local people. The big question is: Do they even care? If not why? Are their concerns legitimate? Is the value of biodiversity and pristine habitat only recognized by tourists & international NGO’s, who dominate the discussion? The film is based on the voices of people living on the edge of nature: a dairy farmer next to Nairobi’s National Park, a farm family raising corn next to the Laikipia Nature Conservancy, and a Maasai cattle herder next to the Mara Reserve. It’s a critical debate for local conservationists trying to stop the destruction of nature. A film by Herman Chege.
