John Martin, Rebecca Field, Peter Stonier & Sebastian Perry, Producers
6 minutes
* World Premiere

Monique Pool, CI partner and founder of the Green Heritage Fund Suriname, finds herself "slothified" after an area of forest in Paramaribo, Suriname, is cut down. Monique rescues more than 200 animals, mostly sloths, and brings them to an emergency shelter, which also happens to be her home.

"Laikipia, The Land of Life"
Giuseppe Bucciarelli, Producer
Terra Conservation Films
37 minutes
Country: Kenya
* New York Premiere

Laikipia, central Kenya. Here dangerous wildlife share the land with thousands of farmers and their livestock. A perfect combination for trouble. But despite all odds the people living in Laikipia are fighting to make a dream come true. In this region of Africa co-existence between the needs of humans and the necessities of wildlife and Nature is a well established and solid reality.


"Ahmed and the Return of the Arab Phoenix"
Giuseppe Bucciarelli, Producer
Terra Conservation Films
23 minutes Language: Italian (subtitled in English)
Country: Syria
* North America Premiere

"Ahmed and the Return of the Arab Phoenix" was shot around the Palmyra oasis, Syria, not far from the Euphrates river and the Iraqi border. Despite its bad reputation in the international press, the Syrian government is very much involved in the effort of protecting its natural heritage. This is the story of a handful of visionary men who are fighting in the desert to protect what is left of the biodiversity of  Al Badia, the semi-arid desert steppe stretching from the Iraqi border to almost the Mediterranean coast. Their efforts will be rewarded by the discovery, in a remote area, of the last middle eastern breeding colony of the Bald Ibis (Geronticus eremita) in the wild, one of the rarest migratory birds and a symbol of wisdom for the Bedouins of the desert


"Spotter Come-Home"
Giuseppe Bucciarelli, Producer
Terra Conservation Films
7 minutes
Country: Kenya
* World Premiere

Spotter, a five- year-old male Black Rhino, just decided to explore the world outside Lewa Downs, his heavily protected conservancy. Now he roams a land where armed poachers are after him and his immensely valuable horn. He must immediately be brought back home to save his life.


"Walking with Baboons"
Giuseppe Bucciarelli, Producer
Terra Conservation Films
7 minutes
Language: Italian (subtitled in English)
Country: Kenya
* World Premiere

They are short, hairy and funny looking. They are also astute, strong and well organized. They are baboons. Widespread all over Kenya, these monkeys are often considered pests. But a day spent walking alongside a troop of wild baboons in the Rift valley will change our mind. Come with us and discover the true colors of one of the most intriguing species of Africa.
