American scientists Mark and Delia Owens brought international attention to an alarming die-off of thousands of African animals during the late 1970s. Their books with haunting photographs of piles of dead wildebeest and elephant and lion carcases not only put wildlife preservation high on the international agenda, it also resulted in their eviction from their adopted homeland by the Botswana government. This National Geographic documentary is the story of their work, their departure from Botswana, and their search for a new study site. It looks at Mark and Delia’s motivation, enthusiasm, hardships, disappointments and successes. It is expertly narrated by Peter Coyote.
