My Africa transports viewers to the untamed rangelands of Kenya as Lupita Nyong'o narrates the story of Naltwasha Leripe, a young Samburu woman. Whether tending daily livestock, digging “singing” wells, or rescuing a baby elephant orphaned by a poacher’s gun, Naltwasha reveals her world--of wildlife and humans intertwined.
My Africa highlights the success of the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, the first community-owned elephant sanctuary in Africa. With a restored connection to these special creatures, communities like Naltwasha’s are rediscovering an age-old coexistence with wildlife.
Conservation International and its partners are working to support these heroes, who give us all hope.
