Wild Aid
"The Great Race"
This beautifully animated film voiced by Trevor McDonald tells an origin story behind the animals used in Chinese astrology. Specifically it reveals the special role of the elephant and how it's time for us all to come to the aid of this magnificent beast. Tundra*'s animation is extremely engaging and really brings home the importance of this message.
