“An award-winning television presenter and filmmaker, Bonné de Bod, is well-known for her in-depth reporting on wildlife and environmental issues. For nearly a decade, Bonné has presented in both Afrikaans and English on South African television. Awards include the prestigious SANParks Kudu Award for Best Journalist in 2015 and an ATKV-Mediaveertjie in 2016. Her Kudu award stated that she received the nod due to her “passionate, balanced reporting on wildlife conservation issues as well as keeping the public updated and informed about environmental issues in South Africa.” For the last 4 years, Bonné, together with her co-filmmaker Susan Scott, has been working on a film about the rhino horn war and the devastating impacts on our beloved real-world unicorns. The film is called STROOP: Journey into the Rhino Horn War and is due to be released in San Francisco on 9 September 2018!
We met up with Bonné in the Walter Sisulu Gardens in Johannesburg where the 3 of us pretended we were in the wild bush of the Kruger National Park and covered Bonné's career path to telling stories about the wild, the rhino horn problem and some of the amazing work being done to fight the rhino horn war including her upcoming film, 'STROOP: Journey into the Rhino Horn War'.
