Every year at least 25,000 elephants are killed by poachers for their tusks to feed the hunger of ivory collectors and the market for religious objects. The slaughter is massive and accelerating. The very existence of these magnificent beasts is at risk. Watch the premiere screening of the ultimate animal story, Battle for the Elephants, from National Geographic Channel. Hear the urgent story of the fight to save the earth’s most charismatic land animal. Go undercover to meet the secret criminal network behind this deadly trade. The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmakers and elephant experts.

In partnership with National Geographic Television.
Co-sponsored with the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.
