The story of two women in different parts of the world who pioneered the work of rescuing, raising and releasing orphaned animals back into the wild. Dame Daphne Sheldrick is the first person to successfully raise baby elephants. The orphans are eventually placed in Kenya’s Tsavo national park. Doctor Birute Mary Galdikas works in Bornea to save infant orangutans. A new film documents the investment – physically, emotionally and financially – to care for animals whose life span is similar to our own. On this month’s environmental outlook, we look at the challenges of saving endangered species one animal at a time.
