I watched the DVD last night and was left with mixed emotions. Amazement and gratitude with the work David and Daphne Sheldrick did for all the Tsavo wildlife. If only there were still men of his caliber today! I think of the patience Simon Trevor must have had to spend so much time and effort filming, documenting what was happening and making the wonderful films to bring attention to the plight of African wildlife.

Then I couldn't help but think, here we are, 40 - 50 years down the road, poaching is worse now than it was then, now the poachers are using AK-47's, - yet the crime of poaching is still fought in the same way it was back then with fewer poachers being caught, and those who are caught get away with a slap on the wrist. That is truly disheartening.

If only films like "Wanted - Dead or Alive" and "Bloody Ivory" could be mandatory viewing for every school child in the world, including the Asian countries, then perhaps the adults of the future might be more caring and protective of wildlife.

Again, thank you AEFF for the wonderful work you do!

After reading Daphne Sheldrick's "Love, Life, and Elephants: An African Love Story" which inspired, touched and broke my heart all at the same time I was prompted to see this film which is well worth watching in my opinion. She mentioned this film in her book and how it should be seen in schools, not to mention by everyone to attempt to make the human population understand animals a little more and what is happening to Wildlife, particularly Elephants and Rhinos.

I was thrilled to see many of the animals she talks about in her book and saddened once again by the loss of little Aisha as well as the senseless killing for horns and tusks sold and used for petty inanimate objects that nobody needs or should want. It was certainly disturbing to see how the poachers attack and kill these magnificent creatures, but to SEE it really brings it home and will hopefully raise awareness of a situation that may never go away due to greed and heartlessness.

I am also thrilled to see the web and social media presence of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and that they are here, despite the loss of David Sheldrick in 1977, and saving as many animal orphans as they can (you can foster an Elephant or Rhino to help their efforts) in Africa, raising awareness of the wonders of these magnificent creatures. And the fight still is going on to STOP poaching. I highly recommend this film for all who love and respect animals. It will bring you closer to the reality that we live in a world that can be GOOD but can also be bad not to mention ugly.
