Naledi: a baby elephant's tale
Set in a rescue camp in the wild of Botswana, Naledi tells an incredible story of the connection between one elephant and her caretakers. At six weeks old, baby elephant Naledi is suddenly orphaned, causing her health to suffer. Determined to save her life, her caretakers must devote themselves to her recovery – enduring weeks of worry and sleepless nights. Rich with emotion and decked with stunning scenery, Naledi is a testament to the special bond between human and animal and the pressing need to end the ivory trade.
