Sinopsi:

In the north east corner of Tanzania lies a beautiful national park: the Tarangire.
During the wet season the animals migrate out of the park in search of particular food sources. This brings them into conflict with agriculturalists.
In a project to understand the migration routes, zebra, wild beasts and elephants are captured, radio collared and tracked for years at a time. The research involves a lot of adventure and sophisticated technology. From tracking on foot to the use of satellites scientists are able to supply the data necessary for managing the areas around the park .
Balancing wildlife conservation and human development is a difficult task.
Short term profits are on a collision course with long term sustainability.
The research has a broad spectrum that involves the Masai: without the local people’s support the project would be unlikely to succeed.
The results of the study will be used by the local authorites to determine what areas need to be left untouched around the Tarangire in order to ensure the survival of this unique natural environment for generations to come.
