I've long wondered why it isn't called "International Geographic."
"Gabon: Last Eden" is a National Geographic TV program. I was able to see it via Netflix streaming.
Gabon is a West African country that straddles the Equator. It is a diverse land with rivers, waterfalls, swamps, rain forests, plains, and an ocean on its westernmost border.
The land has such species as forest Elephants, gorillas, Mandrells, hippos, and a vast wealth of birds, insects and snakes. In essence a type of "Eden." This film focuses on a conservationist's 15-month travel, on foot, through the country and culminating at the sea. It includes many examples of threats to the life there, including poachers and exploration by a Chinese oil company.
A key result of all this has been the setting aside of a number of important tracts as national preserves in Gabon, to assure the protection of the habitats and the various species, many of which are found nowhere else.
An important and very interesting program.
