Wild Daze Synopsis:
This powerful cinematic call to action demonstrates the dire challenges facing species who depend on biodiversity, including our own.
Through interviews with conservation experts ranging from Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE to wildlife trophy hunters, filmmaker Phyllis Stuart explores the relationship between international crime cartels, colluding government officials, animal poaching, the illegal ivory trade, cattle barons and human beings, as she examines how rampant corruption complicates the fight to save species nearing extinction.
Wild DaZe shows this ecocide is not simply an African problem. Saving their precious rainforest and biodiversity will help us all. Not only are animals being driven to the brink of extinction, but the humans living with the wildlife are also being exploited and displaced. This illegal wildlife trade is driven by many factors including unbridled crime and corruption, armed insurgents, trophy hunting, the pet trade, the bush meat trade and an insatiable consumer demand for natural resources.
Since human beings are dependent on nature when we work to save nature, and non-humans, we are really working to save ourselves. Since our survival hangs in balance, we must decide whether we see ourselves as superior, as custodians, as entitled consumers or as a part of a delicate ecosystem.
