Documentary following the majority female focused anti-poaching unit, The Black Mambas. Dedicated to protecting rhinos through boots on the ground as they patrol unarmed through the Balule Nature Reserve in the Greater Kruger National Park, South Africa. Working night and day to prevent poachers from breaking in, they fearlessly take on the responsibility of acting as the ears and eyes of the reserve. The Black Mambas have dropped snaring by 76% within the reserve and continue to fight against the war on poaching as well as lead the way for women in their community.

My Role was:

I was the director, cinematographer, and editor of this self funded documentary passion project. It was an immensely educational and insightful experience to learn from these fearless women about the war on poaching and animal conservation.
