USA, EUROPE, ASIA – 10-04-2018 (PRDistribution.com) — Southern Africa is faced with increase poaching, especially in endangered species, including rhino, elephant, lion and pangolin. Situated in Namibia, we see the devastation, cruelty and the greed first hand. In September this year, Prince William arrived to asses the issues. Jackie Jan is promoting videos to try and end the illegal wildlife trade on rhino horn, ivory and pangolin scale.
Illegal poaching on African wildlife has become focus point of the world. The Problem Source: DemandIn Southern Africa, poaching and illegal wildlife trade are on the rise, and we are seeing, more than ever, animals being ruthlessly tortured and killed for horn, ivory, scale, paws, teeth and meat. Even animals highly endangered and protected under law are no longer safe. The problem does not rest with the actual poachers. Despite efforts of fighting poachers on the ground, the problem source remains the demand for these items considered valuable as ornaments, carvings, delicacies or imagined properties. The source of the problem lies with the people who want it and who are unwilling to hear the facts. As long as there is a demand and money behind it, poaching will continue. Our GoalOur goal is to reach to that point of demand: the very source of the problem through feature film instead of documentary, which provides the facts and statistics of what is happening behind the curtains but through story-telling, emotional attachment, action, adventure and love. You can see our short tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHEDVyqvZYcThe film is targeted for worldwide viewers, but mostly aimed at the countries where poached items end up due to the demand. We also hope to get the film shown in high schools within these countries for the future generations to understand that it is not only illegal to purchase these items, but also morally corrupt. Profits of the film are to be distributed to organisations who work to save rhino. Already in Namibia ISAP has come on board and will feature in the film as they are. See their work at: http://isap.com.na or watch it at: https://we.tl/t-iyYc4B0tDlIn Namibia, local tradesmen and schools are getting involved with the project in order to help save the legacy of the country and give a chance for future generations worldwide to witness exotic creatures in their natural habitats.
