The ivory trade is a cruel business. Every 15 minutes an elephant is killed for its ivory. 65 percent of the continent's elephants have been killed for their ivory in the last five years. Crime syndicates involved in gun, drug and human trafficking reap huge profits from the ivory trade. So do dangerous terrorist groups including Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army and al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab. These terrorists threaten the safety and stability of Africa and the national security of the United States.
"This film is a stunning testimony that inspires unfaltering resolve to save Elephant society and redeem our own species"- G.A. Bradshaw
PhD, Psychologist, Best-Selling author
"An insightful, thought provoking, unflinching love story to elephants. It does not shy away from the complexities of the ivory trade."
-Bill Maher, Comedian, Writer, Television Host
