MILKING THE RHINO

MILKING THE RHINO

A ferocious kill on the Serengeti... warnings about endangered species.

A ferocious kill on the Serengeti… warnings about endangered species… These clichés
of nature documentaries disregard a key part of the landscape: villagers just off-camera
who navigate the dangers and costs of living with wildlife.

Africa is emerging from a history of “white man conservation” that displaced indigenous
people, banned subsistence hunting, and fueled resentment. Now, a revolution in grass-
roots wildlife conservation is turning poachers into protectors. But change doesn’t come
easy.

With memorable characters and spectacular locations, MILKING THE RHINO tells joyful,
penetrating and heartbreaking stories from Kenya and Namibia – revealing the high
stakes obstacles facing Community Conservation today.
