This documentary by film-maker, Laurie Hedges, highlights the developments made in Akagera National Park, managed by the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) in partnership with African Parks. The film focuses on the return of two iconic species; lion and rhino in recent years. The overarching theme is that conservation is not just about protecting wildlife, it’s about people. Local people should be at the core of conservation, benefitting from it, and actively participating in it, and how the return of these two iconic species is seeing this happen.
This film will be followed by a short documentary titled A Walk through
the Land of a Thousand Hills, directed by Chema Domenech.
