In the state of Nagaland in India’s far northeast, a small team of conservationists discovered something that was both enthralling and alarming. They witnessed local hunters capture and slaughter tens of thousands of beautiful little raptors- The Amur falcons for consumption. This is the story of the investigative documentation that followed, and the campaign that was launched to save the migrating falcons. In a world where conservation successes are few and far between, this campaign to save the Amur falcon shows us how a small group of determined people can make a big difference.
