Saving Rhino Phila



1 x 60minutes

From deep within a conflict emerges a powerful emotional story of survival. A new breed of poachers has recently gone to war on South Africa’s rhino population and against all odds; one rhino has survived their bullets. Her name is Phila.

Phila’s story lures us into a world of organized crime and millionaire poachers, armed to the teeth with automatic weapons, helicopters and night vision goggles. A host of offbeat characters are drawn into Phila’s world: From her owner and his shattered dreams to wildlife veterinarians arrested for poaching. From crack police units to glamorous landowners lacing their rhino’s horns with poison.

It’s a rollercoaster ride complete with surprising twists in a conflict that is not as simple as it seems on the surface. And Phila has inadvertently become the symbol of hope in this war where the survival of her species is literally at stake.
