A Life in the Day of an Elephant

Big Momma is leading her herd across the African plain to spend the day at a waterhole. When they hear loud bangs in the distance she anxiously hurries her family along. Elephants have no natural enemies - except man! But later in the day poachers track down the herd and a baby elephant is separated from the rest. It is captured and taken to a zoo where it grows up. But elephants never forget, and it always misses and yearns for its family. Then one day rangers arrive. They have located Big Momma and her herd, and now they are taking the young elephant back home to be reunited with its family.
This moving WWF musical appeals to children's love of animals, giving an insight into the life of elephants, their ancient customs and the dangers they face.
