Megan meets the elephants...

In January, Woburn Safari Park welcomed author Megan Rix to meet the herd of Asian elephants, including newcomer Tarli (scroll down for video).

The day was to film a promotional video to accompany the release of Megan’s new children’s book, ‘The Runaways’. The book is about an elephant and her calf, who escape the circus with the help of a Sheep dog in World War One.

The book concentrates on the special relationship between mother and child, as well as the dangers animals faced during the First World War.

Here's Megan getting up close to some of the members of the herd at Woburn, as well as finding out lots of interesting facts from Elephant Keeper, Amy Cockerill.
