The Conservation Game

MKE Film Festival

Screening Sponsored By:

Stephen Ragatz

Set against a rising interest in and debate about captive big cats in America (epitomized by THE TIGER KING), THE CONSERVATION GAME follows the story of Tim Harrison, a retired cop who makes a bombshell discovery while undercover at an exotic animal auction. Suspecting that America’s top television celebrity conservationists (Jack Hanna, et al.) may be secretly connected to the exotic pet trade, he sets off on a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, filled with lies, deception, and coverups.
