WORK! Many thanks to all the JEACs, parents, and other participants, for their hard
work and dedication towards creating awareness and saving our planet. Also, a heartfelt

Moving video of 2 elephants reunited after 20 years. The Dallas Zoo had an elephant
named Jenny, who was alone for 20 years after they had sent one elephant to another
zoo for mating. There was talk about sending her to another zoo, but the outcry from
animal lovers prevented that. Now, finally, there are 2 more elephants. Can you imagine
the loneliness these animals felt to have been isolated for so long when they are
naturally loving toward all members of their troop. At least now they each have
companions to spend their days with.
Jenny and Shirley were elephants at the same circus when Jenny was a calf, and
Shirley was in her twenties. The two lived one winter together, but then were separated
twenty-two years ago.
It's very rare for elephants to display this kind of emotion in captivity, and it's probably
the first time such a thing has been documented on film.
