Wild at Heart crisscrosses southern Africa to examine a world in transition, a world seeking to achieve a balance between the demands of progress and the desire to conserve a natural legacy unique on our planet.

Reporting from the front line of conservation, they explain how war, poachers, and economic instability threaten such magnificent species as elephants, rhinos, and cheetahs, and how well-meaning but misguided conservation projects have altered migratory patterns and upset the ecological balance.

They look at such controversial measures as the culling of elephant herds and discuss the difficulties of developing policies that encourage local peoples to see wildlife as a profitable resource worthy of preservation rather than an obstacle to human development.
