Walter Kohler of TMFS leads a one minute silence for fallen Ivory Game hero.

2nd October 2017

Walter Kohler on collecting The Grand Teton Award for 'The Ivory Game' led the audience at the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival Gala Awards ceremony in a minute’s silence to remember Wayne Lotter, a leading Elephant Conservationist and a consultant on his team who was murdered in Africa in August whilst fighting the Ivory Trade.  

It was a sobering reminder of the risks being taken by individuals on the frontline of conservation, and a call to arms for the media and filmmakers to support their efforts and help the fight. This years JHWFF's Conservation Summit on Cats this year helped focused our attention.

NHN had a fantastic festival. We covered many of the sessions during the week and these were all posted up on our special Festival website, NHN Buzz Track. The session write ups and commissioner wish lists will shortly be up on NHN for you to refere to.  Our guest writers ( and talented freelancers) Ben Morris French and Emma Tyrell deserve a specail thanks for all their hard work.
