Steamboat briefs: Earth Day edition of Wild Films is Tuesday at library

In honor of Earth Day, Bud Werner Memorial Library will present a free screening of “Wildlife Defenders,” an award-winning film by Rakiz Tuffile, which was featured at the 2014 International Wildlife Film Festival, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Library Hall.

The movie will take viewers to the front lines of the war against the multi-billion dollar illegal wildlife trade, which is fast becoming a major contributor to the world’s biodiversity loss.

This investigative documentary goes behind the scenes with the Wildlife Crime Unit of Malaysia’s Department of National Parks and Wildlife as they confront the global epidemic in wildlife trafficking, following wildlife warriors into action as they battle to snare the devious gangs who supply the billion dollar animal trade. The run time is about an hour, and the screening is free. for more information.
