At the sanctuary, we’re committed to sharing the importance of animals living in their native habitats. That’s why we’re so excited to bring this documentary to the big screen in Newtown at no cost to you!

Movie Review from Common Sense Media:

Parents need to know that this brief (40 minutes) documentary is a safe choice for younger kids because there aren’t any upsetting scenes of predatory violence or deaths, both of which are common in comparable, longer films about the animal kingdom. There are, however, some references to the reasons that animals were orphaned (mostly due to poachers, since predators don’t typically leave young animals alive). The two female experts followed in the documentary are wonderful role models, particularly to kids interested in zoology and nature, because they’ve dedicated their lives to researching and rescuing animals, as well as preserving their natural habitats.

Kids will learn a great deal about the two species followed in the documentary — elephants and orangutans. The film teaches kids about the complexities of raising and caring for babies that belong in the wild. There are some references to the importance of habitat preservation and discussion of a few of the reasons that the animals are being left motherless.
