Botswana’s Okavango Delta, a 22,000sq kilometer maze of wetlands in the middle of the Kalahari Desert, is one of the last untouched refuges for wildlife on the planet. But its freshwater arteries – which provide water to over one million people – are under dire threat. Follow conservation biologist Steve Boyes and a team of international scientists, photographers, filmmakers, and African guides on an epic four-month journey down the Delta’s source rivers to track the causes of threats to this vital river basin — from Angola through Namibia and finally emptying into the Delta in Botswana. Neil Gelinas creates a stunningly photographed tale of passion and conservation.
