“Soul of the Elephant” – An Intimate Look At One of the World’s Most Intelligent Animals

Listening to filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert talk about the elephants, you can almost feel how much they love these majestic animals. The Jouberts traveled to a remote corner of Botswana to learn more about the 7,000 elephants who call this area home. Their nonprofit, the Great Plains Foundation, is dedicated to conservation of the Great Plains of Africa.

In other news about these social creatures – Chai, a 37 year old Asian elephant, died last month at the crowded Oklahoma City Zoo. She was the second elephant to die there in less than a year. We encourage the Oklahoma City Zoo to close their exhibit and send the remaining elephants to an accredited sanctuary. The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee is the nation’s largest natural habitat refuge at more than 2700 acres, where the residents are not required to perform or entertain the public.
