        Grassland Elephants

        For nearly two decades, Martyn Colbeck, an award-winning filmmaker, has documented the life of Echo, a matriarchal grassland elephant of Kenya. Echo and her closely knit family have grown to accept Colbeck into their world, allowing him to record the interactions among them that bond them together. This video segment from Nature shows a greeting ceremony and the introduction of a new calf to the family. Through Colbeck?s eyes the audience can begin to understand the family ties among elephants as well as their playfulness and means of communication.
