Even with such criticisms, this is a movie about one of the most important issues of our lifetime...

February 16, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This film may shed significant insight into zoological conservation efforts, but there is never any question of which institutions benefit the most from its version of history.

October 21, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

A timely documentary which makes the case for the effectiveness of human intervention, both in increasing the numbers of engendered creatures and educating the public.

September 15, 2021 | Full Review…

A film can make a plethora of valid and important points and still clumsily and forcefully push an agenda at the same time.

Soundly counters the anti-zoo protest movement with a cascade of facts, figures and pretty pictures.
