The Environmental Film Festival's Youth Program will be featuring NALEDI: A BABY ELEPHANT'S TALE at the Historic Lincoln Theatre in Washington, D.C. The program is free and appropriate for middle school and high school students. Two programs will be held, the first beginning at 9:30 and the second at 12:30.
Naledi: A Baby Elephant’s Tale (USA, 90 min.) tells the true story of a baby elephant born into a rescue camp in the Botswana wilderness. When she is suddenly orphaned at one month, the keepers and scientist looking after the herd become tireless surrogate mothers. Witnessing Naledi’s birth and human caused struggles, inspires camp scientist Mike Chase to launch the most ambitious census ever of African elephants across the African continent as a last effort to help them survive. Now, he must race to defend an entire species while struggling to save a single life.This film stands to help promote knowledge, and further, a worldwide ban on the sale of ivory.
