Who doesn’t love animals? Here at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, we not only love animals, we relish the chance to share that love with our visitors. What better way than to announce an upcoming 3D IMAX film that follows the tale of a cute orangutan and an adorable baby elephant.

Born to be Wild 3D is an inspiring story of love, dedication and the remarkable bond between humans and animals. This film documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them—saving endangered species one life at a time.

Stunningly captured in IMAX 3D, Born to be Wild 3D is a heartwarming adventure transporting moviegoers into the lush rainforests of Borneo with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas, and across the rugged Kenyan savannah with celebrated elephant authority Dame Daphne Sheldrick, as they and their teams rescue, rehabilitate and return these incredible animals back to the wild.

This film is narrated by Academy-Award® winner Morgan Freeman.
