Streaming Video - 2013
Rate this:
When Africa's elephants were declared endangered it was estimated that more than 100 of the animals had been killed every day between 1979 and 1989. The decimation was blamed on poachers and civil wars, and while this was an accurate assessment for some regions, in others the loss was also due to habitat destruction at the hands of well-meaning environmentalists. International pressure to protect elephants had caused a population explosion on game reserves, with over-grazing ultimately creating wastelands out of several conservation areas. This program examines the depletion of natural resources in elephant sanctuaries and the devastating effect this has on all species within the reserves.
