Would it surprise you to know that Africans have no tradition of poaching elephants for their tusks? Modern ivory poaching in fact is imposed by Western and Asian markets. So what motivates indigenous people to take up guns against this precious keystone species? What is the cost to them and the forests they rely on for their livelihoods? The first of four locally produced conservation documentaries, this film asks the question: what is the real price of ivory?
