The Stage 32 Videos: Poaching

A Reason To Fight - Anti-Poachers in Kasungu National Park -…

"I'm just looking forward to meet the guy who shot him." Matt Destre - Anti-Poaching Unit This extended scene from our documentary The Unjust & Us, gives a more detailed look of our experience at Lifupa Lodge in Kasungu National Park, Malawi. The lodge is a stunning and tranquil place, but our time there would tell a tragic story. We were met by elephant researcher, Remke Lasance, veteran Matt Destre and his anti-poaching unit, and wildlife veterinarian Dr Amanda Salb. Kulimba, one of the 40+ elephants in the area had been shot by a poacher. Kulimba means strength and she certainly proved that she had plenty of that. This tragic event reminded us how serious the poaching crisis is in Africa. Elephants and other animals are on the verge of extinction because they are being murdered at an alarming rate, all for the profit of the wealthy and corrupt. Like Remke said, "It's an organized crime."
