Saving Planet Earth - Series 1 - Jack Osbourne: Saving Elephants


Celebrities investigate the issues, search out solutions and see how we can all be involved in saving planet earth's wildlife. Jack Osbourne travels to Northern Namibia where the largest land animal in the world is in crisis. Desert elephants nearly became extinct in the 1980s, but their numbers increased when the ivory trade was banned. Today, however, elephants and humans are locked in a bitter struggle over precious food and water. To Jack's surprise, many of the locals would like to see the back of them. He quickly realises that the best hope for the future of these animals is by finding ways that the people of Namibia can learn to love elephants through schemes like eco-tourism which put money back in local pockets.
