Winners from 2007 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival

CRIME SCENE WILD: SHARKS (UK, 2007, 49 min.)

Second only to drugs in volume and money, illegal trade in protected wildlife is booming. Former CIA agent Steve Galster applies counter-insurgency techniques to saving wildlife, forging key partnerships with the Wildlife DNA Service, forensic scientists based in the UK who specialize in wildlife crime, and the Wildlife Crime Unit. This segment of the series deals with the culling of sharks for their fins, a multi-billion-dollar-a-year trade that is driving sharks to the brink of extinction. Narrated by David Attenborough. Directed by Phil Stebbing. Produced by Cicada Productions and Animal Planet International. Environmental Award.

Introduced by Deborah Rothberg, Public Programs Coordinator, National Museum of Natural History.

Shown as part of the program on 3/15/08 Winners from 2007 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, along with THE QUEEN OF TREES, PLANET EARTH: FROM POLE TO POLE, OCEAN ODYSSEY: SECRETS OF THE DEEP, PARANORMAL PIGEONS, and SHOWDOWN AT ELKTOWN.
