The Water Dancers

Duration : 25 min


Dragonflies has been the sentinels of the Earth, living in harmony with indigenous plants and animals for over 300 million years… but Humans threaten this balance. Now, South Africa’s scientists are turning back to the dragonfly for a new way forward in conservation, using a system of connected corridors, called, ‘Ecological Networks.’ The Water Dancers – a name from the Zulu word, “Jigamanzi,” literally “dancing on water” – invites you into the world of the small things to discover how their sensitive nature can help us to design a passage into the future.
