Episode Information

On Easter morning, a baby elephant is mysteriously abandoned by her herd in the wilds of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Saved from certain death by a bizarre chain of events, she forces herself into a very unusual, captive elephant herd. This is “Paseka's” story. We follow her first year in this spectacular African wilderness, learning daily what it means to be an elephant. What is instinctive? What is she taught by the elephants? What does she need to learn from the humans? How does her arrival change the herd dynamics? Her unique journey is our window into the elephant world.
