Africa final on BBC One! Watch David Attenborough & the baby rhino!
The acclaimed nature series Africa comes to an end this evening, but what an episode to go out on!
In this last instalment, entitled The Future, David Attenborough investigates the cruel world of rhino poaching and also how the future of elephant survival may be affected, by humans constantly taking over their natural habitat and homelands.
Also in the episode, David seeks out a tribe of Maasai warriors that have become lion guardians, and travels to learn more about local conservation in action on the tropical East coast.
Moving on to Kenya, David spends time with a very young rhino called Elvis, who has been reared by the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. The team took the drastic step of removing his horn, so he wouldn’t become a target of poachers, as it’s revealed that throughout Africa, on average two rhinos are killed every day by those wanting to profit from the animals.Attenborough meets experts who are working hard to protect one of the last great gatherings of black rhinos in the Kalahari.
In Mozambique, Gorongosa National Park is in chaos, because of a raging civil war, which has ruined what was once a wildlife rich area. An ambitious team of scientists and conservationists is attempting to assess the damage and whether it can thrive again in the future.
