The Water Dancers - Dragonflies, Conservation, Harmony, Future

Embark on a journey into the delicate realm of dragonflies, creatures that have graced our planet for 300 million years. In South Africa, as humanity grapples with the consequences of its actions, scientists turn to these ancient insects for inspiration and guidance. "Water Dancers," named after the Zulu Jigamanzi, meaning 'dancing on water,' explores the profound relationship between these fragile creatures and the environment they inhabit. The documentary uncovers the role of dragonflies as environmental sentinels, helping design Ecological Networks – connected corridors aimed at pioneering a new path for global conservation and sustainable living.
