The Apocalypse Now of nature documentaries.
Poacher Hunters follows two real life mercenaries who have dropped out of the first world to protect the last remaining elephants from ruthless illegal poachers in Malawi, Africa.
This is the story of ex special forces turned mercenary, fighting for a cause of their own choosing, beyond politics, beyond payment, and no doubt, beyond any search for glory.
Revenue from the illegal trade in endangered species is second only to the drug trade. The poachers who murder for ivory, destined to be sold on the black market, are as armed and violent as any drug cartel.
Outnumbered and underfunded, they push on, fighting a new type of battle, defending the undefended.
