Forest Elephants

Going into their third week, Julie and Guy are approached by the monkeys, who are curious about their new neighbors in the canopy. Climbing experts help Julie set up a platform to observe the mangabeys’ sleeping zone and closely interact with them. Meanwhile, Guy teams up with an elephant expert to learn more about the reclusive giants of the forest. They track the elephants deep into the jungle using thermal imaging to study this endangered species.

Life in the Canopy: Jungle Diaries airs on Nat Geo Wild Thursday August 12 at 9P et/pt.
