  On the next Your Call’s One Planet series, filmmaker Phyllis Stuart will join us to discuss her new documentary Wild DaZe.

It examines the challenges facing animals living in Africa. Through interviews with conservationists, Stuart explores the relationship between international crime cartels, colluding government officials, animal poaching, the illegal ivory trade and cattle barons. What’s been done to save animals like giraffes and elephants from extinction?
