EVENT TO FEATURE FILM SCREENING AND PANEL DISCUSSION ON GLOBAL CONSERVATION AND ANIMAL ADVOCACY, WITH WORLD-RENOWNED CONSERVATIONIST LEK CHAILERT AND DIRECTOR ASHLEY BELL
The Maryland State Bar Association Animal Law Section and Loyola University Maryland invite members of the public and the media to a free screening of “Love and Bananas: An Elephant Story.” The film follows TIME Magazine’s Hero of Asia Lek Chailert, director Ashley Bell, and a team of rescuers as they embark on a daring mission to rescue Noi Na, a 70-year-old partially blind trekking elephant, and bring her to freedom.
The film will be featured in the Baltimore Environmental Film Series, a film festival that merges the art of environmental education and advocacy. Following the film, a panel discussion featuring Lek Chailert and Ashley Bell will explore the topics of global conservation, animal advocacy and sustainability.
“They are the color of the planet. They are beautiful. If we want to protect them, we have to do it right now.”
