Giving Nature a Voice: Maras Deathbed
The Mau Forest, the source of the Mara River, is under assault from deforestation and charcoal burning. Land hungry farmers and unscrupulous politicians are responsible for the degradation of the environment, with drastic consequences for both downstream communities and wildlife, especially in the Maasai Mara Reserve. Kenya’s government, conservationists, and tour operators have all realized the gravity of the situation. Will they come together to save the “8th wonder of the world”- the annual wildebeest migration, and stop the violence between rival communities of pastoralists and farmers? A film by Sheila Sendeyo & Robert Gichira, co-produced with NTV Kenya.
