Bob Simon's Wild Kingdom

When it comes to the world of foreign reporting, Bob Simon has been everywhere and seen everything. But it turns out he has a soft spot when it comes to the plight of threatened wildlife. And don't get him started on baby elephants.

From wars to famines, from the Olympics to overthrown dictators, Bob Simon has covered just about every major international event in his 44 year career at CBS News. (He won a Lifetime Achievement Emmy eight years ago, and he's still going strong.) From time to time, Bob turns his attention away from getting shot at to give voice to endangered animals.

Watch Bob Simon's report.

He'll be the first to tell you, these stories are as compelling and important as any he has ever told.
