[edit] Information

Saving Africa's Elephants: Hugh and the Ivory War Two-part documentary series in which Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall explores what can be done to stop the killing of African elephants for their ivory.

[edit] Part 1

Starting in the poaching hotspot of northern Mozambique, Hugh follows the ivory trail through the port of Mombasa in Kenya, where a whistleblower reveals the corruption that lets smuggled ivory through the port. From there, Hugh heads to one of the busiest ivory markets in the world - Hong Kong, where he goes undercover to prove that traders are laundering recently poached ivory smuggled in from Africa. To his surprise, he discovers that Europe and the UK are also sending huge amounts of ivory to Asia.

[edit] Part 2

In this second and final programme of the series, Hugh explores whether lessons can be learned for the elephant from the disturbing world of rhino poaching. Rhino horn is sold in Asia on the black market for $30,000 to $60,000 per kilo, making it more valuable than gold and platinum. From the killing fields in Kruger Park, South Africa, Hugh goes undercover to investigate the dark and dangerous world of rhino horn dealers in Vietnam. Hugh considers the argument that legalising the trade in rhino horn and elephant ivory would ultimately buy their survival.
