Summary
Should humans intervene when the animal population of a game reserve exceeds the ability of the reserve to sustain that population? Such overbreeding is inevitably followed by a population crash, which some environmentalists believe is part of a natural cycle that must not be tampered with and that others point to as validation for judicious culling of herds. This program goes to a game reserve in Zimbabwe, where rangers work with leopards, elephants, and lions, to demonstrate the active environmental management techniques that are necessary for the survival of all of the park's species.
