THE LEGEND OF TARZAN PARTNERS WITH STOP IVORY TO SAVE THE FOREST ELEPHANTS OF GABON FROM EXTINCTION

BURBANK, CA – June 1, 2016 – Leading up to the July 1st release of The Legend of Tarzan, warner bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and the filmmakers and stars of the film are teaming up with international NGO Stop Ivory to tackle one of our world’s greatest conservation challenges – the fight to protect Africa’s rare forest elephant and, by extension, save the world’s elephants from extinction.

The sweeping African landscapes that feature prominently in the film were captured on location in the extraordinary country of Gabon, where English conservationist and documentary filmmaker Josh Ponte has spent the last 15 years working to preserve the country’s wildlife.  Ponte, who served as the African technical advisor on the film, has focused his efforts on stopping the illegal killing of the rare forest elephants that call Gabon home.  In the last 30 years, ivory poaching has reduced the global forest elephant population by two thirds – and half of those that are left live in the Gabonese forest.  Without action, even these could be gone in a decade.

Now, the cast, filmmakers and Studios behind The Legend of Tarzan are joining forces with Stop Ivory in support of the Elephant Protection Initiative to help save this endangered animal.  The partnership was forged in the spirit of creating entertaining, informative and meaningful ways to engage the global community of moviegoers to join the effort to end the poaching of Gabon’s surviving forest elephants while reinforcing the film’s central themes of humanity’s deep connections with wildlife and nature.

  1. My dream is The Legend of Tarzan becomes a phenomenon like Avatar and motivates the people of this planet to come together and stop this illegal elephant poaching.
