San Francisco Zoo & Gardens is shining a light on the tragedy of illegal wildlife trade in its newest exhibit, Red Ivory. The artistic visual narrative is a powerful, compelling and provocative six-minute video by San Francisco Zoo’s Artist in Residence Henry Jackson. The film is looping every ten minutes at an indoor theater in the Primate Discovery Center. Using layered, enhanced video and composed audio, the piece takes viewers through several scenes depicting elephants in the past, present and future, including repercussions of current poaching practices – a world without elephants. Although the situation is grim, it’s not too late for concerned conservationists to make a difference.
