Jennifer and Johan traverse this vast landscape to visit some of the key role players in creation of the Corridor, a bold integrated conservation initiative. Amongst the partners we meet a Sandveld potato farmer, a Working for Wetlands team clearing alien invasive plants, a fish monitoring programme in the pristine upper reaches of the Olifants River, and a local farming community at Wupperthal who are being shown conservation friendly ways of dealing with problem wild animals.
The film gives us a unique glimpse into the different components, and the enormous scale, of the corridor. But it is the people who hold the key. “The concept within the Corridor is People in Partnership to make things happen”, says Jennifer. “It’s when people start thinking differently and asking different questions, that’s what excites me”.
