    “I believe that every plant on Earth has a purpose”, says Barry Koopman to his son Berty when asked about traditional use of plants found in the veld. Berty is one of six young people traversing the Suid-Bokkeveld to visit community elders. They hope to learn about local indigenous knowledge, some of it going back to times when Khoisan people lived entirely off the productivity of Nature. To capture this wisdom, the group has decided to make a film which they will be able to use in stimulating community discussion about the value of wisdom gathered over many generations. By the end of their road-trip they find that they have made some meaningful discoveries about their heritage, and are able to articulate their hopes for the future.

    Negry is a Rhino Ambassdor (RA) in the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Region (K2C). She lives in Newington, a village close to Kruger National Park and the network of private game reserves that support “Big 5” tourism. It is her job, along with RAs in other villages of the region, to speak on behalf of an animal species facing extinction driven by human greed. Her compassion for two young rhino calves orphaned by poachers is palpable when she recounts the loss of her own mother at a very young age. Her story, which is intertwined with the perspectives and energetic innovations of community elder, Killion Mabunda, is communicated in a participatory film project with a group of young Rhino Ambassadors and Environmental Monitors working with K2C.
