The Last Animals Music

'The Last Animals’ song is a tribute to the last three Northern White rhinos on the planet and ‘Hold My Soul’ is a chant about shame and peace. The hip hop artist Emmanuel Jal is a Sudanese Canadian actor, musician and peace activist who was forced to be a child soldier by the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army. Proceeds from the song sales will be used by The Last Animals Foundation, a charity established in California, to provide educational scholarships for the children of fallen rangers. The foundation’s board members consist of Kate Brooks - director of The Last Animals film, Patrick Duboscq - the rangers trainer featured in the film and Dr. Rebecca Hardin - the film’s academic advisor from University of Michigan.

About the film

The Last Animals is a story about an extraordinary group of people who go to all lengths to save the planet’s last animals. The documentary follows the conservationists, scientists and activists battling poachers and criminal networks to protect elephants and rhinos. From Africa’s front lines to behind the scenes of Asian markets to the United States, the film takes an intense look at the global response to this slaughter and the desperate measures to genetically rescue the Northern White rhinos who are on the edge of extinction.
