It's sad, but necessary
25 November 2019 | by adriang61See all my reviews

The Last Animals is about the poaching and killing of rhinos and elephants. Right off the bat, the documentary is graphic and very shocking. I was stunned at how much it had shocked me. The story follows around Kate Brooks as she explores the deep underbelly of the African black market and the need for ivory. Brooks does a very good job at explaining why the demand for ivory is so high, and how getting it from rhinoceri have caused some species to nearly go extinct. The documentary is primarily focused on the Northern White Rhino, with only 5 remaining left in the population. Brooks did an excellent job at showcasing how dangerous it is for the park service men to stop poachers. A good chunk of the documentary focuses on that. The documentary is overall a sad, but true message that needs to be heard.
