PS - this Sunday 4.I.08 on PBS:
"Unforgettable Elephants" airs on Nature. More than fifteen years ago, Martyn Colbeck began to document in film and photos the lives of African elephants. For nearly two decades, he has grown particularly close to the elephant matriarch, Echo, and her close-knit family, who have never failed to astonish, amuse, and inspire him.
Fall in love with Echo, Erin, Enid, Ely, and the rest of this loving family Sunday at 8pm on PBS (check local listings). And visit the NATURE WEBSITE to learn more about these majestic creatures.
