Borneo's Pygmy Elephants 1 x 60'
Borneo’s diminutive pygmy forest elephants were always thought to be a feral population derived from domesticated Asian elephants. Now, though, DNA testing has confirmed that they are a unique subspecies who’ve lived on Borneo for at least 300,000 years.

This is the story of a forest guide, Bert Dausip, who observes and befriends the elephants. His daily expeditions deep into the jungle reward him with some of the most intimate and close up encounters with forest elephants ever filmed. This film documents his mission to save them from poachers, and protect their forest home.

Bert is probably the only person in the world who can track down and observe forest elephants in their wild forest home on a daily basis. This in itself is a spectacular accomplishment, but little did Bert know that once he collected the DNA samples for science, his familiarity with the pygmy elephants would become crucial to an action plan to save these remarkable animals and their habitat.
