The Ivory Game

 

Somewhere in Africa, an elephant runs terrified in the night from the sound of a gunshot. Somewhere else in Africa, after the gunshot, you hear nothing.

Award-winning director Richard Ladkani and Academy Award® nominated director Kief Davidson filmed undercover for 16 months, moving across the continents of Africa and Asia, infiltrating and documenting the deep-rooted corruption at the heart of the global ivory trafficking crisis. Their cameras follow a band of remarkable heroes; from intelligence organizations, such as the Tanzanian Task Force, intelligence gathering and whistle-blowing initiatives like WildLeaks, undercover activists, high-level conservationists and frontline rangers. Together they take on the fight, to bring down poachers, traffickers and corrupt government officials.

Unseen Enemy

 

In the 21st century, we are all connected.

Population growth, mass urbanization, deforestation, climate change and increased travel have dramatically increased the risk that familiar diseases will spread and mutate, and new ones will emerge. As people enter new spheres of biodiversity, they come into closer contact with other species, increasing the risk of viruses jumping from animals to humans, and then spreading more widely. Travel from Vancouver to Hong Kong, New York to Liberia, Leipzig to New Delhi and from Rio de Janeiro to Kinshasa, as “Unseen Enemy” helps us discover that our connection can be either incredibly dangerous or a powerful force for good. As it turns out, we are all the frontline in global health.

You can watch this gripping documentary, included free with your Amazon Prime subscription.
