Storyline

A film profile of the park rangers in Bardia National Park who have to protect the mountain kingdom's river dolphins, tigers, one-horned rhinos, gharial crocodiles and elephants from poachers. In a country as poor as Nepal, the value of these animals to the illegal wildife trade is a constant temptation. And the animals do not help, they constantly wander into the farmlnds around Bardia, maiming and killing the peasant farmers. The film higlights the plight of the dolphins who swim in the gorges of the Himalaya. They are not only threatened by poachers but by hydro-electric projects that will sever their migratory routes.

Trivia

The first footage of the largest known Indian elephant. Some allege it is a throwback to the mastodon. It is certainly aggressive. It chased the film crew's domesticated elephants (while they were aboard them). No-one resolved the mastodon issue but they did discover that their elephants were faster. See more »
