LIVING ON NATURE’S EDGE

Kenya is lucky to have some of the most spectacular wildlife in the world but increasingly it’s in conflict with local people. The big question is: Do they even care? If not why? Are their concerns legitimate? Is the value of biodiversity and pristine habitat only recognised by tourists and international NGO’s, who dominate the discussion?

The film is based on the voices of people living on the edge of nature: a dairy farmer on the border of Nairobi National Park, a family raising corn right on the edge of the Laikipia Nature Conservancy and a cattle herder on the boundary of the Maasai Mara Reserve. It’s a critical debate for local conservationists trying to stop the destruction of nature.
