Flag Expedition Video on Animal Planet

During her Flag Expedition "Painting the Painted Dogs" Alison took video of an elephant calf being rescued from a drinking trough. The calf had somehow fallen into the narrow trough and was stuck upside down with its feet waving in the air. Alison had been at the waterhole earlier in the day with Jealous, the Painted Dog Conservation tracker so they knew the calf could not have been stuck there for long. The question in their minds was 'where is mother?'. There were no elephants nearby so Jealous called Peter Blinston, the PDC project manager.
