Editorial Reviews

This extraordinary pachyderm and the herd of elephants she protected has been the focus of many an intriguing documentary. So it's no wonder that her death last fall from natural causes, should precipitate this comprehensive look back at her amazing life through interviews with researchers who studied her every move for decades. 2010/color/60 min/NR.

Aside from the story, the photography is amazing.

This documentary about a loving, intelligent female elephant who tends her family until her death, reaches the depths of the human soul beyond all thought.

I have closely followed Echo's story for many years now. Watching every episode that Nature, or the BBC aired. When this episode finally aired, I felt like I had lost a friend as well. The documentary is one of the most moving and fascinating ones of the animal kingdom.
"Echo: An Elephant to Remember," had me in tears most of the episode, but clapping at the end. For we learn just how deep elephants are. Echo taught her family well, and she will live on through them. I hope the story doesn't end, for I would love to learn more about spunky Ebony, or see how well Echo's sister does in continuing to lead the family.
It is sad to see such a magnificent creature go, but the story is one that cannot be missed. There is just too much to learn from it.
Aside from the story, the photography is amazing. I never tire of seeing these awesome creatures dominate the plains, or watch them interact with each other. This is a must have for any animal lover.

This is one of the best and one of the saddest elephant documentaries. It is about the passing of Echo and how it affected the other elephants of the herd. The program is only an hour long, but the content is so good that after watching it you feel that you have had a worthwhile experience with elephants. The blu-ray disc shows with much clarity the majestic scenery of the national park with Mount Kilimanjaro rising in the background. Cynthia Moss relates the stories of her long experience with elephants, and she probably knows them better than anyone else. You can sympathize with her and the others who worked with Echo when they have lost the elephant after knowing her for so many years. Elephants are sensitive, intelligent animals, much like the humans who care for them.

If you own the previous documentaries of Nature or the BBC about Echo and her elephant family you will want to add this one to your collection. Perhaps another episode featuring elephants and/or African wildlife should have been added to what is offered here, since many of the other Nature DVD's/blu-rays contain bonus programs to make them at least two hours. It's the one thing that would have made this outstanding blu-ray/DVD even better. The program has such beautiful footage photographed with the latest technology that it makes you wish for more.

Through her lifetime example, Echo has been one of the greatest teachers about elephants. If you haven't seen previous programs about her, this one will catch you up on her,her amazing story, family and legacy. She reminds us what incredible being we travel through life with on this planet -- if only we have the wherewithal to recognize them.

Echo is an elephant matriarch who was studied by Cynthia Moss for over 28 years. Echo led her family through many droughts, and through many tough times. Her family was close-nit, and they depended on each other for survival. I have followed the story of Echo the elephant, ever since she has been followed in the 1990's. I remember the documentary they had following the birth of her son Eli. Her son was crippled for the first 3 days of his life. He walked around on his knees until they turned raw, because he could not stand up straight like the other normal baby elephants.

Even though his strength was fading, one day he finally gathered up the strength to stand up straight. Eli finally got his first chance to nurse from his mother. After he got his first meal, his strength improved and he became stronger every day thereafter. Echo went on to have other babies after that, and the documentaries about her slowed down. Echo's daughter's remained with her over the years, and they also helped her look out for the young elephant calves.

This movie is more about the final demise of Echo, It is very interesting, and I enjoyed it so much. Echo was a very intelligent thinking elephant that was devoted to her family until the very end of her life. I like elephants even more than lions, but the good films about them are harder to find.

I fell in love with Echo and her family when I saw a show about her on Animal Planet. After I found out I couldn't purchase that particular video, I started looking for anything and everything I could find about her and I am so glad that I found this video. I watch it over and over again. My husband is so tired of watching Echo, but he does enjoy her almost as much as I do.

This documentary about a loving, intelligent female elephant who tends her family until her death, reaches the depths of the human soul beyond all thought. I have always loved elephants, so this DVD brings to my heart the added love of another creature so very close to some humans who adore their children and family. It is a bittersweet, yet precious true story of Echo. She will live forever.

Great photography and explanation of the family of Echo. In this time when the African Elephant is very endangered it is of small comfort to have a video of that amazing mammal. That is why supporting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Foundation, which rescues the young of those slaughtered for their tusks, is so very very important!

I am so glad to have this. This was a remarkable Elephant. I now want to get the first DVD about her travels. So sad her life had to come to and end.
