Cher & the Loneliest Elephant

OUTSTANDING DOCUMENTARY OR NONFICTION SPECIAL

 

For 37 years, Kaavan, a bull elephant, has been locked up in a rundown zoo in Pakistan. Now, after a five-year campaign led by superstar Cher, Kaavan is getting ready to move to a wildlife sanctuary in Cambodia. But transferring a 10-ton animal 3,500 miles won’t be easy. They’ll need a plane big enough to fly him. They must also build a customized crate that will hold him in place. And perhaps the largest obstacle of all: The move needs to happen during the most disruptive global emergency since World War II: the outbreak of COVID-19.
