Love & Bananas (& Awards!)

Love & Bananas: An Elephant Story, now available on iTunes, is a documentary about the daring mission to rescue Noi Na, a 71-year-old, partially blind Asian elephant. More than just exposing the plight of Asian elephants, the film focuses on hope and brings to light the people who work tirelessly to save these gentle giants.

GreaterGood.org partnered with the Love & Bananas team and Elephant Nature Park to focus on rescuing even more Asian elephants from abuse and exploitation, and providing a sanctuary for them to live out their lives in peace.

Not only did we raise over $150k, rescue 2 elephants and are currently working to purchase new land, but Love & Bananas: An Elephant Story won a Genesis Award for Outstanding Documentary Film!! Announced recently by the Humane Society of the United States, the award honor news and entertainment media for outstanding reporting and creative portrayals of animal protection issues.

We’re so proud of our partners and so grateful to have donors like you who made this campaign possible.
