Mali: Endangered Elephants of Gourma

Global Environment Fund Short Documentary

The largest land-based mammal is disappearing. Only 350 desert elephants remain in the deserts of Gourma, but investments in local economic opportunities and grassland preservation by the Global Environment Facility are helping to save this magnificent endangered species. For this short documentary produced for a global environmental conference, Arrowhead Films visits remote Mali villages – and the migration routes of the incredible elephants – to illustrate how GEF investment in the planet is paying off for both people and animals.
