The film follows Jackson on a quest that crisscrosses America and takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent to ask the question, "Can compassion grow to include all beings? Can people who identify as religious or spiritual come to embrace the call to include all human and nonhuman beings in our circle of respect and caring and love?"

The film is followed by a Q & A session with Dr. Will Tuttle himself who is featured in the film.

Benefiting TCU's Rhino Initiative. Rhinos are being brutally poached in South Africa at a rate of over three per day. In the last five years we have lost over 5,500 rhinos and the numbers keep climbing.

Activities include crafts for children, nature walks, birding presentations, live raptors and booths.
