The Last Animals follows the conservationists, scientists and activists battling poachers and criminal networks to save elephants and rhinos from the edge of extinction.

Conflict photographer Kate Brooks turns her lens from the war zones she is used to covering to a new kind of genocide – the killing of African Elephants and Rhinos – in this sweeping and sobering expose. As the single-digit population of Northern White Rhinoceros ticks closer to zero, Brooks outlines the myriad factors contributing to the current epidemic of highly effective poaching and trafficking syndicates, drawing startling connections between the illegal wildlife trade, drug cartels, international terrorism and border security. But all is not yet lost – at the same time, Brooks documents the heroic efforts of conservationists, park rangers, and scientists to protect these animals in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Please note that the screening is 1.5 hours and discussion after is around 45 minutes so the event will not finish until 7.30pm.

The Q&A session will be with the director, Kate Brooks, Professor Sam Wasser, University of Washington, and Professor Bhaskar Vira, Director of the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute. We anticipate this session to be around 45 minutes to an hour.
