Hannah Goes Wild - Von Elefanten und Spurenlesern

Hannah meets one of Africa's most experienced elephant trackers: Hendrick from Elephant Human Relations Aid (EHRA). Namibia's elephants are subject to human-animal conflict, among other things, and the fight for water makes them competitors. EHRA builds water wells for the elephants far from the villages with volunteers from around the world. Hannah digs a water pipeline with volunteers and sets off with Hendrick into the dry Ugab riverbed


Director: Anna Maria Behrends

Anna Maria Behrends, who grew up in the idyllic southwest of Hamburg and at the picturesque Wörthsee in Bavaria, has been drawn to nature since childhood. After studying media technology, she initially developed and produced numerous factual entertainment formats for various public broadcasters, including the NDR series "Von Meisterhand - Traditionsberufe suchen Nachwuchs," which won the Herbert Quandt Media Award in 2012. In 2018, she then followed her heart's call for nature and species conservation topics and now implements them for Doclights / NDR Naturfilm as a producer. In 2021, she realized NDR Naturfilm's first online-only production as a director in Namibia: the species conservation series "Hannah goes wild" for the ARD Mediathek.
