Echo of the Elephants
Echo of the Elephants

In January 1990, Cynthia and Martyn embarked on the first of what would ultimately be four exceptional films produced over thirteen years in the shadow of the Great White Mountain, Kilimanjaro, documenting the lives of one elephant family for the BBC’s Natural History Unit. These uniquely moving and unforgettable films have wider implications for our understanding of elephants everywhere.

Echo became one of the most famous elephants in the world, capturing hearts across the globe with her gentle leadership of the EBs. Watched over by Cynthia Moss, Echo leads her charge through the rough and the smooth, good times and bad, all captured faithfully on film by award-winning photographer Martyn Colbeck.

Echo’s death from natural causes in 2009 was a truly heartbreaking time for the ATE team. This film charts her last days, the devastating impact of her death and the subsequent recovery of the EB family.

“Elephants form deep bonds with each other, which last for decades. Elephant survival is strongly affected by access to the social and ecological knowledge that older elephants hold; where to go, what to eat, how to avoid danger.”
- Dr. Cynthia Moss
