We’re SUPER EXCITED because this is our very first episode of our new series: GLOBAL CHANGEMAKERS, where we interview inspiring people who are passionate about making change for the better!
Cue: Bonné de Bod, the award winning filmmaker and presenter, who together with Susan Scott produced (over the course of 4 years!!!) the hard hitting documentary STROOP: Journey Into the Rhino Horn War.
We take a look at the rhino poaching problem and what viewers can expect from the film.
Huge thanks to Bonné, Susan and STROOP: Journey into the Rhino Horn War for letting us use some of their precious footage in this video (Look for the © STROOP on the relevant shots)
The Sustainable Jungle Podcast interview with Bonné: During our interview in Johannesburg’s We met up with Bonné in the Walter Sisulu Gardens, Bonné gave us the STROOP scoop:
- what is South Africa’s rhino horn problem and why is it getting worse?
- initiatives to stop it, like the Black Mambas, an all female anti-poaching unit
- Dr. Jane Goodall on the community connections between the rhino horn problem and apartheid
- “be the change” (i.e. what we can all do to help)
