The Secret Life of Elephants - Episode 3


Last in the series of three programmes featuring the emotional and dramatic lives of elephants in Kenya's Samburu reserve. After the drought, the rains have arrived, but has baby elephant Breeze survived? As hundreds of elephants descend on the reserve for the breeding season, the research team hit their busiest time of year. With the help of new technology, Saba Douglas-Hamilton tracks down the biggest land animals on earth: the mighty bull elephants. But even Saba is keeping her distance when Rommel, a dangerous bull who once flattened a car and tried to kill two of the team's researchers, arrives on the scene. Outside the reserve, there is a shocking development when Onesmas Kahindi investigates two mysterious deaths; could poachers be targeting the local elephants? And when field researcher David Daballen finds a baby elephant in desperate trouble, he and the team must mount a life or death operation to save her.
