Echo: An Elephant to remember. On PBS 17 October.

We're certain that those of you who know about world-famous Echo, the late matriarch of the EB family, will enjoy some more time with her. As many of you are aware of, the EBs were our main study group for several years, so we are particularly fond of this wonderful and engaging family.

You can watch a celebration of the life and legacy of Echo, who was born in 1945 and died in 2009, on PBS' Nature on Sunday, October 17, at 8 p.m. (check local listings). BBC's Natural World followed this very special elephant for the last 20 years of her life - you can see how Sir David Attenborough introduced BBC's version ("Echo an Unforgettable Elephant") here.

In this final chapter of Echo's story, Nature looks back at her remarkable journey, and takes a look ahead at the future awaiting her family. This poignant portrait pieces together watershed moments in Echo's life and examines the plight of her fragmented family in the wake of her death. You can find some interviews, video clips and photos related to the BBC version here.

You can view some more photos of Echo, and listen to her voice, here. The photos and recordings on this page are from the work of ElephantVoices, partly incorporated in our online databases.
