Overview

Tigre Gente illuminates the dark network of the global jaguar trade through the lens of two impassioned individuals living on opposite sides of the world, both of whom share a common goal of protecting this majestic and increasingly endangered species. In the Madidi National Park of Bolivia, a determined park director, Marcos, investigates illegal hunting on its protected land. His investigation uncovers an unexpected connection between South America and the pervasiveness of wildlife trade in China, where journalist Laurel Chor shares Marcos’ deep concern and sense of social responsibility. Tigre Gente explores the majesty of the jungle as it stands against its greatest threat of all — mankind.
