Amazing Elephant ActivistPosted by Pamela Hart, ALDF's Director of Animal Law Program on September 30, 2013
At the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF), we are fortunate to work with outstanding attorneys, law students, and advocates who tirelessly work to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals. In many cases, it’s the next generation of animal advocates that catch our eye and remind us why we continue the march forward to strengthen animal protection. Through their perseverance, commitment and tenaciousness, this younger generation imparts a gift—a lens in which we can look through and see a future that is kinder to all animals. They remind us that each individual can truly make a difference and a recent award-winning documentary How I Became an Elephant hammers this message home.
How I Became an Elephant is one girl’s journey to inspire a movement. When Juliette West set out on a quest to educate herself she got far more than she bargained for. Now she is angry. Her anger is driven by love; love for all that is natural and free. How I Became an Elephant follows this innocent fourteen year-old girl from suburban California on her quest to save the world’s largest land mammals; a quest that takes her halfway across the globe and face to face with the giants she aims to save.
