"Gardner's of Eden" is about the danger elephants face due to constant poaching for their ivory tusks.

In fact, experts say an elephant is killed every 15 minutes for this reason. At that rate -- elephants could be extinct in the wild within the next 10 years.

Officials say a lot of money from the illegal animal trade is used to fund crime and terrorist groups, making it a global security threat. 

The film discusses the crisis, the reasons behind it and the work the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is doing to save these animals and stop poaching. Davis is a patron for the trust.

The film has won several awards from the festival circuit. Mobile users tap here to watch the trailer on Vimeo.
