Narrated by William Shatner, Return to the Forest is the story of the Elephant Reintroduction Foundation, the first elephant conservation organization in the world with the mission to return captive Asian elephants back to the wild in Thailand to save them from extinction. Initiated by Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand, the organization has worked tirelessly for ten years to prove that captive elephants can re-adapt to the wild. After much effort the dedicated team has successfully returned over 90 formerly captive elephants back to their natural life and habitat away from tourists and other forms of labor such as logging, performing or street-begging.
