Summary Footage of the weapons of war being primed for a new battle by Wildaid, a conservation group. It is headed by Suvanna Gauntlett, its Cambodian manager and major benefactor. Wildaid's mission is to save Cambodia's endangered wildlife, particularly, the few remaining wild tigers. It aims at taking the fight for the environment to the poachers, and is training and arming Cambodian rangers to counter poaching. Launched two years ago, its Cambodian campaign, which targets the wildlife traders, involves raids. Wildaid is also funding an experimental village, so that small scale landholders, given money, seeds and title over the land they occupy, do not have to encroach on the forests. Features Suvanna Gauntlett who discusses Wildaid's campaign and the problems in wildlife trade, involving government officials at the highest level. Includes selected newsreel footage of the raids to rescue the wild animals in captivity. Gives panoramic aerial views of the Bokor National Park, which is the focus in this campaign. Shows also views of the illegal clearing of parts of the forest, and illegal logging, encroaching on the forests in Bokor. Includes also interviews with WildAid members for comments.
