A revealing and frank examination of efforts in Kenya and Namibia to bridge the divide between the interests of small scale and commercial farmers and the conservation of habitat and wildlife which sustains lucrative tourism. Rapid population growth will put great pressure on wildlife preserves in the long term. The local economic model demonstrated in this documentary suggests a direction for indigenous communities in other countries for greater economic self-sufficiency. This documentary is well worth viewing simply for the wildlife, natural scenery, and traditional culture photography.

This was a fascinating look at some of the challenges in developing a conservation mindset in rural Africa. Lots of great animal scenes.

"The Masai tribe of Kenya and the Himba tribe of Namibia - two of Earth's oldest cattle cultures - are emerging from a century of 'white man's conservation,' which threw them off their lands, banned subsistence hunting, and fueled resentment. These indigenous people are discovering that earnings from wildlife tourism can rival the benefits of livestock. But change is not easy. Charting the collision of traditional ways with Western [tourism and commercial farming] expectations, "Milking the Rhino" offers complex, intimate stories of Africans at the forefront of community-based conservation."
