This documentary is about the Udzungwa Mountains in the Morogoro region of Tanzania, where the Natural Science Museum of Trento has been working on a project to research and conserve biodiversity since 2004. Francesco Rovero, the museum’s Curator of Tropical Biodiversity, worked on the film as its science consultant, in particular on the story of the discovery of the giant elephant shrew, a new species of mammal that hit the newspaper headlines in February 2008. The documentary includes the first ever footage of this shrew, as well as stunning aerial and ground shots of the forests and its endemic species.
