Episode 2: The Black Mambas Anti-Poaching Unit


Premieres September 27th

 

"This war on poaching won’t be won with guns and bullets, but through the local communities and education."

This is the belief of the Black Mamba Anti-poaching Unit, the first majority female anti-poaching unit in South Africa. Founded in 2013, the group protects all boundaries of the 52,000-hectare Balule Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.

We love James Suter's short narrative film about them, watch here

And also this incredible feature, by Cristina Goyanes, about them in Nat Geo last year.
