The perilous 1,000-mile journey to save Africa’s endangered black rhinos
28 October 2022
Cameron Ewart-Smith, editor of Wild magazine, the official publication of the Wild Card programme and its partner parks, will reveal transfrontier conservation areas or peace parks on SABC.
The six-part TV series plans to bring plants, animals and people of the peace parks to life, as Ewart-Smith and crew begin with Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, after which they will head for the Richtersveld. Peace parks are cross-border conservation areas that enable animals to follow their ancient migration routes across two or more countries.
Homebrew Films, creators of the conservation programme Groen and SABC’s Shoreline, are producing the transfrontier parks series, which has been commissioned by the Natural History Unit.
During the filming, Ewart-Smith will be blogging about the parks and his experiences, producing field reports, photographic updates and articles on the Wild Card website and be available for short radio and TV interviews via satellite phone.
