Bastion of the Giants

2015 • 52 Minutes

A journey into the lives of the Asian Elephant and stunning wildlife in the bio-diverse verdant North Eastern Jungles of India and the challenges of conservation amidst human-animal conflicts as human populations burgeon around these ecological hotspots and ancient elephant lands, competing with wildlife for space and natural resources. How a nation steeped in spirituality that is born out of nature will have to rise up to the task of protecting India’s wild heritage and educating local people and offering them livelihood opportunities from the conservation process itself and showing them that forests are their investments for the future, will go a long way in conservation. “Bastion of the Giants” is an odyssey into the picturesque unique wetland canvases and the spectacular wildlife in them and how protection of flagship and keystone wildlife species, by forest departments and governments with support of people and researchers, leads to the conservation of a diaspora of fauna and flora, ultimately leading to the preservation of human life itself.
