Naledi: A Baby Elephant’s Tale tells the true story of a baby elephant born into a rescue camp in the Botswana wilderness. When she’s suddenly orphaned at one month, the keepers and scientist looking after the herd become tireless surrogate mothers. Camp scientist Mike Chase has launched the most ambitious census ever of African elephants across the continent; a last ditch effort to help them survive. Now, he must race to defend an entire species while struggling to save a single life.
A special screening of Naledi: A Baby Elephant's Tale will be presented by Vulcan Productions and the CITES Secretariat to help promote a worldwide ban on the sale of ivory.
“This is the bleakest time for elephants. The statistics on the plight of Africa’s elephants is daunting. I’m devoted to supporting new endeavors which provide meaningful science to help reverse this decline and to reduce the variability in elephant population statistics.”
Paul G. Allen
"How many elephants are on the African continent? And that’s a question which nobody can answer with any certainty. And the world's largest terrestrial animal—the 6-ton animal roaming our continent—and people can’t tell you how many are left. They can tell you how many are dying, a hundred elephants a day Africa is losing."
