National Geographic's Television Film War Elephants
One of National Geographic's top writer/producers, David Hamlin, showed clips from War Elephants and discussed the stories behind the film. In Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park, elephants are in crisis. Years of civil war and ivory poaching have left them frightened and hostile toward humans. The world's foremost elephant researcher Dr. Joyce Poole works to build trust and retrain the animals away from their violent behavior.
