Battle For The Elephants Feb. 27 PBS

Premiering on PBS: Battle For The Elephants
From:  Stuart D. Strahl, PhD, President & CEO, Chicago Zoological Society
 Battle for the Elephants explores the brutal slaughter of African elephantsor their tusks, fueled largely by China ’s demand for ivory.  The film is based in part on an article published in the October 2012 issue of National Geographic magazine titled “Blood Ivory” and tells the ultimate wildlife story — how the Earth’s most charismatic and majestic land animal today faces market forces driving the value of its tusks to levels once reserved for precious metals. Journalists Bryan Christy and Aidan Hartley take viewers undercover as they investigate the criminal network behind ivory’s supply and demand.
