Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker; Zero Dark Thirty) has created a powerful PSA about the African poaching crisis. Last Days uses masterful animation to show how terrorism is funded by poaching, and it presents the tragic reality of the imminent extinction of elephants and rhinos if we don’t take greater action soon.
VETPAW is honored to be included on the website for the PSA, among a small group of esteemed organizations.
Ms. Bigelow’s team explains how they came to make Last Days:
“Last year we were made aware of the very real connection between elephant poaching and terrorism. For us, it represented the diabolical intersection of two problems that are of great concern – species extinction and global terrorism. Both involve the loss of innocent life and both require urgent action.”
