A gripping and intimate look at the rhino poaching war raging across Africa
Rhinos are on the brink of extinction, with their demise largely driven by the insatiable demand for their horns. South Africa’s Kruger National Park has a relatively high rhino population and porous borders – factors that have seen it become ground zero for rhino poaching. With unprecedented access, this startling feature documentary travels to the front line in South Africa, following two heroes who put their own lives on the line every day to protect the rhinos in their care. It also captures South Africa’s largest undercover wildlife investigation and interviews the poachers who work for the kingpins in this disturbing and illicit business. A gripping story, with intimate and never-before-seen footage, The Last Horns of Africa is a compelling look at the complexities and moral debates around contemporary conservation and how it has become entangled with the illegal wildlife trade and a dark web of corruption.
