  Due to illegal hunting, the ivory trade, and the loss of their natural environment, African elephants are on the edge of extinction▼. They are the world’s largest land animals and an important species that keeps the environment in Africa healthy. But since the international sale of ivory is still so common — it’s worth a total of about one billion dollars a year — elephants are in more danger than ever before.
  That’s where the people working at Kenya’s David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust come in. In the National Geographic Channel’s (NGC) first showing of the award-winning film Gardeners of Eden, you can see their experiences on the front line of the fight for the survival of elephants. These dangerous situations include meeting poachers▼ in the wild and rescuing baby elephants whose parents were killed by hunters. Trained experts at the trust raise the baby elephants before returning them to the wild.
  This powerful movie shows the workers struggling to protect the elephants. They have been very successful so far, with 150 young elephant orphans raised by the trust to date. Learn more about the efforts to save this amazing animal by watching Gardeners of Eden this month on NGC.

 
  由於非法獵捕與象牙貿易猖獗,以及自然環境的喪失,非洲象已瀕臨滅絕。牠們是世界上最大的陸生動物,也是維持非洲生態環境健康的重要物種。但是因為國際象牙貿易仍十分普遍 —— 其總值約每年十億美元 —— 導致大象現在面臨更甚於以往的危險。
  這就是肯亞的薛德里克野生動物信託工作人員出場的時候了。國家地理頻道首度播映《伊甸園的園丁》這部得獎影片時,你可以看到他們站在前線為大象爭取生存權的歷程。這些危險的情況包括在野外遇見盜獵者,以及營救雙親遭獵人殺害的象寶寶。信託機構裡受過訓練的專家們在象寶寶被放回野外前會負責養育牠們。
  這部強而有力的電影呈現了工作人員為保護大象而奮鬥的過程。他們到目前為止都非常成功,而信託機構迄今已養育了一百五十隻小象孤兒。收看國家地理頻道這個月的《伊甸園的園丁》,來了解更多關於解救這種了不起的動物的任務吧。
