Synopsis: For generations, Laos was known as the Land of a Million Elephants. Today, there are around 400 elephants left in Laos. If the Laotian elephants become extinct, not only does it mean a loss of one of the largest mammals on earth but also a loss for Laotian history and culture. GARDENERS OF THE FOREST explores how the Chinese market, deforestation, and tourism all play a role in the imminent extinction of elephants in Laos.
