THE LAST ANIMALS shines a light on a global wildlife crisis — the poaching of elephants and rhinos for their ivory and horns, decimating their populations to the point of near extinction. The film follows conservationists, scientists and activists battling poachers and criminal networks to protect elephants and rhinos from extinction. From Africa's front lines to Asian markets to the United States, the film takes a look at the global response to this slaughter and the efforts to stop the eradication of the world’s dwindling populations of elephants and rhinos.

Discussion will be led by Alli Hofner, a UGA doctoral student in Anthropology and Integrative Conservation whose research has been focused on human-nonhuman interactions within conservation landscapes in West Africa.

Sponsored by Speak Out for Species and Sustainable UGA as part of the Animal Voices Film Festival.
