The Third Conflict

Our world’s wildlife is in critical danger of vanishing forever. And it often feels like there’s no way you or I can do anything to change a future that looks increasingly bleak for our planet. But, in “The Third Conflict,” you’ll experience how, in places like the Masai Mara in southwestern Kenya, everyday people are coming together to create a solution to the problem in ways that benefit not just the animals, but also the local people.
