If you’re an animal lover like I am, you’ll definitely want to check out Born to be Wild (available today on Blu-ray & DVD).
This movie takes viewers to two different animal shelters; one for orangutans in Borneo’s amazing rainforests and another for elephants, located in the savannahs of Kenya. The orangutans and elephants are very young, and have been brought to the shelter because they’ve lost their mothers. It’s up to the shelters’ workers to become the animals’ new moms, and give them the love and care that they’ll need to survive when they go back to living in the wild one day.
Here are some things I noticed about the movie.
1. This movie will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Workers have to care for the baby animals just like a mother orangutan or mother elephant would. This means sleeping beside them, feeding them, washing them and playing with them! How would you like to cuddle with a baby elephant or orangutan? I know I would!
2. The scenery is amazing. The beautiful landscapes of Borneo and Kenya will have you glued to the screen.
3. There are some sad parts, like when workers have to rescue baby animals from tricky situations.
I hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did! Leave a comment below and let me know what you thought!
I’ll talk to you soon,
