Film & Ivory Trade Panel Discussion

"Battle for the Elephants"
John Heminway and J.J. Kelly, Producers
50 minutes

"Battle for the Elephants," a groundbreaking, new, one-hour special produced by National Geographic Television, explores the brutal slaughter of African elephants for their tusks, fueled largely by China's demand for ivory. The film 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. In Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, one of the world's main ports for smuggled ivory, Hartley attempts to buy large quantities of tusks from poachers. In China, Christy explores the thriving industry of luxury goods made from ivory and the ancient cultural tradition of ivory carving.
