SYNOPSIS: Africa's Vanishing Giants follows the journey of actress and photographer Jiang Yiyan as she travels to Kenya to learn about the plight faced by the rapidly decreasing rhino population. She visits the OlJogi and Ol Pejeta conservancies and gets up close with several rhinos and sees how these gentle giants are hanging on by a thread. She visits the worlds last northern white male rhino, now deceased, and sees how extinction is forever. She exposes the illegal trade in rhino horn and encourages viewers to take action by not buying rhino products. The film shows how complicated it is the manage these large animals and takes us behind the scenes of modern conservation with visits to a local ranch and community.
