Wind Shadows, the documentary project, is about the collision course of humans, wildlife, and livestock on the Kenya plains. Wind Shadows calls for action against the environmental degradation of Kenya’s Central Rift Valley.
• Business and government have hatched schemes to exploit Kenya’s dwindling resources – its water, forest and wildlife. With population expansion, people compete for precious farmland.
• But crops fail year after year, so poaching and deforestation continue. Many species have already disappeared. Rivers are running dry, as watershed forest are chopped and burned.
• Can environmentalists convince government and business to reverse the damage and embrace an enlightened land policy?
