We follow various players in the wildlife industry of South Africa that trade in wildlife.
Hunting, eco-tourism and breeding of wildlife in Africa is big business. The latest prize is the exotic species market, including the likes of breeds that few people have ever seen before: golden wildebeest, white lions with pale blue eyes, black impalas, white kudus, and coffee-coloured springbok.
These prize animals are fetching the BIG $’s for breeders and traders. We follow 5 such players in the market as they head off to game auctions around South Africa – we also go behind the scenes of the game capture units tasked with rounding up these prize species.
