This 21 min. film portrays three succesful examples of community based protected areas in Benin. It shows how nature protection can go hand in hand with rural development. The filming is done by the crew from Nature Tropicale which has been trained by me. Some of the filming we did together and other parts were done by Joseph-Marie, William and Josea with just a little distant coaching from the Netherlands. The editing is done in the Netherlands at studio Smulders, directed by me.
The film was first shown at the IUCN World Parks Congress 2014 in Sydney, Australia. In June 2015 a French version of the film has been broadcasted by national television in Benin.
