“The no-man's land dividing North and South Korea is the most heavily militarized border in the world, but it provides a unique sanctuary for Asia's endangered wildlife, including the rare leopard cat and the wild boar”

Korea’s demilitarised zone is a place where political and natural history engage to tell one of the most extraordinary wildlife stories in the world. And this story of accidental conservation could end as one of reconciliation.

The DMZ was formed of a 4km wide strip of land, stretching across the entire country, after the chaos of World War Two. Since then, it has become a haven, patrolled by the most unlikely wildlife guardians: over a million armed men keep guard over this impromptu wildlife refuge.
It is now a sanctuary for more than 2,200 types of animals and plants, of which 600 are rare or threatened species. These include the Long-tailed Goral, the Leopard Cat, the Water Deer, the White-naped Crane, and the rare Red-crowned Crane.

As the 60th anniversary of the war approaches, moves of reconciliation are in progress, with discussions focusing on the fate of this extraordinary wildlife reserve.  Animals don’t speak the language of war and division. If North and South Korea can cooperate over their shared natural heritage, nature itself could play a huge part in the reunification process.

This film shows how the wildlife could bring peace to the area, with the possibility for partnership in a trans-border reserve. While existing as a place for human recreation, as well as for research and teaching, the process of environmental protection through a peace park would almost certainly help foster trust.

This DVD is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated 24-page hardback reference book. Watch the close-up wildlife film and at the same time read the book to learn about habitats, diet, life cycle and more. The book is packed with intriguing facts, illustrations, photography and a 'Test your knowledge' quiz.
