    Not saying Echo is senior, but she is a good leader, and graceful.

    I watched the last half on PBS last night.

    I saw that the other night. That was a great video. It's really fascinating to watch the interaction between the family members--at least the females of the family!

    Echo of the Elephants was the first documentary made about Echo and her herd by the BBC. Several other documentaries followed.

    Cynthia Moss, who has studied elephants in the region the 1970s and was the central researcher in the Echo documentaries, wrote on her blog: “for us on the Amboseli Elephant Research Project [Echo] has been an invaluable research subject providing us with insights into elephant behavior, leadership, communication, social relations and intelligence. But she was more than that. She was a daily presence, almost a companion to all of us. She gave us joy and filled us with wonder.”
