Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars
Short enough for junior attention-spans, this nature doc does very well by its modest tapestry. With a typically soothing Morgan Freeman voiceover setting the scene, we shuttle between two wildlife sanctuaries: in Kenya, Dame Daphne Sheldrick cares for orphaned baby elephants and has taken 28 years to develop the right milk formula, while in Borneo, primatologist Dr Biruté Galdikas saves baby orang-utans from their threatened habitat and raises them to return to the wild. Needless to say, the animals are adorable, but they’re not just paraded for our entertainment – the emphasis is on retaining their wildness and getting them back to nature. A worthwhile message, and the Imax 3D format brings it to life so vividly you’ll feel you can reach out and touch that elephant’s trunk. A surefire holiday treat.
