The Elephants of Selenkay

Take a look at our 2nd trailer for "The Elephants of Selenkay"… Screening of the documentary in Nairobi next month at the Alliance Francaise Nairobi.
The Elephants of Selenkay

This is an amazing story about how Elephants returned to an area after over 20 years. Poaching, human-wildlife conflict and hunting drove them away. Through efforts by the Maasai Community in restoring the ecosystem and creating a conservancy, the Elephants returned.

They now have over 300 Elephants resident in the conservancy. The documentary comes along with a coffee table book with Augmented Reality. There is also a conservation angle towards this production, as proceeds from the sale of the documentary and the book will go towards the "Adopt an Acre" project being run by Selenkay Conservancy, whereby they require US$35 per acre annually to keep open spaces for Elephants and have them migrate between the conservancy and Amboseli National Park.

Thanks for sharing @Feisal Malik what a great trailer! It would be amazing if you could write a bit about the film in this post. Maybe a bit about the background? Be especially good for our members who are unable to access the video. Thank you! :)

It was really humbling to watch our documentary and interviews being featured in one of the segments of the 9PM news on KBC. Thank you so much for that, take a look at the piece for those who missed it…   https://youtu.be/ScWxpUqY1pk
