Conservation Force has awarded The Osprey Filming Company and The Hunter Proud Foundation, its principle supporter, the Communications Excellence Award. Osprey has just completed a DVD on the Torghar Conservation Project in Pakistan in partnership with Conservation Force. The DVD is being distributed by the Wild Sheep Foundation, Grand Slam/Ovis, IPHA and Conservation Force. It is the most up-to-date documentary of its kind on this world renowned project. It is to be premiered during the CIC Assembly in St. Petersburg, Russia in May.
This is one of a series of films produced by Osprey for Conservation Force. Two others that were distributed to thousands of CITES attendees were The Fate of the African Lion, produced in 2004, and Tembo: Use or Lose, produced in 2010.
The film is appropriately titled A Dream Deferred because the project can't reach its potential until import of the trophies are permitted into the United States, the largest tourist hunting market. Only then will it generate the greatest revenue to the benefit of the markhor and the people that determine its survival.– John J. Jackson, III.
