Seventy percent of world agricultural land is already used for meat production. With every increasing consumer demand, can we produce sufficient animal protein in the future? The knowledge on managing insects is often held by traditional forest dwellers and forest-dependent people (Durst and Shono, 2010). With insects increasingly being explored as an important source of protein to substitute red meat, this film explores the role of the Giant Hornet, being reared for consumption in the hills of Nagaland in Northeast India.
