Kathryn Bigelow’s Last Days of Ivory
  Oscar-Winning Director Tackles Ivory Trade

Academy Award-winning director, Kathryn Bigelow, teams up with African Wildlife Foundation and conservation partners to fight the illegal ivory trade and the terrorists who profit from it. "Last Days," a short animated film focused on ivory-funded terrorism, premiered alongside the launch of Bigelow's new website, which aims to bring the ivory trade and individuals who profit from it out of business in order to protect both elephants and innocent people.

  Only Five Remain

Angalifu, the San Diego Zoo's 44-year-old northern white rhino, died from old age on December 14. His passing leaves just five of his kind behind in the world, bringing the species even closer to extinction. As we mourn this loss, AWF is urgently responding to the threats faced by the southern white rhino to ensure it does not meet the same fate.
