If humans could show the same compassion for elephants as elephants show other species, we could save these sentient beings from extinction. Between the ivory trade, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and the orphaning of baby elephants, the future for elephants is dire. 1 African elephant is killed by poachers every 15 minutes to make ivory trinkets. At this rate conservationists estimate that elephants will be extinct in the wild by 2025.
The short animation above is a cut from a feature length documentary, currently in production, DO Elephants Go To Heaven? This documentary will approach the elephants' plight from a unique and compelling perspective, working with safari guides and elephant whisperers to find out what elephants are experiencing in the wild and in captivity. The film will examine how elephants and humans are not that different.
