"Boots on the Ground"
Matt Bracken & Rohan Nel, Producers

Rhinos are being slaughtered in South Africa for their horns at a rate of three per day. Two years ago Matt Bracken became the first American to graduate from Protrack Anti Poaching Ranger Training in South Africa and has since dedicated his life to saving rhinos from extinction in the wild. Boots on the Ground is the story of the anti poaching rangers in the bush risking their lives every day and night protecting the rhinos. Experience the blood, sweat, and tears of four anti-poaching rangers through their training and patrol in the South African bush as they sacrifice the comforts of home to save the worlds last rhinos.

"War Elephants"
David Hamlin, Producer
National Geographic Television
60 minutes
New York Premeire

The phrase "An elephant never foregets" could not be more true for the elephants of Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park. Their paradise turned into hell when in 1977, a 16 year-long civil war ravaged the country, leaving more one million people dead and wiping out 95 percent of the park's wildlife. Elephant's pached for their ivory, were among the hardest hit  their population was reduced to just 100 animals from thousands.

Today, peace has been restored to Mozambique but the surviving elephants still carry the emotional scars of war. In most placec, it is rare for elephants to charge, but in Gorongosa elephants must relearn how to trust humans. The return of vehicles to the park  even friendly ones  triggers flashbacks and sometimes, their instinct is to protect their families by charging. War Elephants, documents a brother-and-sister team, filmmaker Bob Poole and world-renowned elephant scientist Dr. Joyce Poole that Gorongosa is now safe and that humans are not the enemy. Through a series of risky experiments and guided by an exceptional understanding of elephants, bob and Joyce are determined for elephants and people to interact peacefully, allowing Gorongosa to become one of the best parks in Africa.
