    Endangered African species like elephants, rhinos, and lions march closer to extinction each year. Their devastating decline is fueled by a global desire to consume and collect these majestic animals. Trophy investigates the powerhouse businesses of big game hunting, breeding, and wildlife conservation. Through the eyes of impassioned individuals who drive these industries, filmmakers Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau grapple with the complex consequences of imposing economic value on animals.



    Do breeding, farming, and hunting offer some of the few remaining options to conserve these species before it's too late?

    Full film in theaters this September.

    ... save the only thing in Africa that is more endangered than the animals ... the land! Without large expanses of wild land, wild animals cannot exist.
