Overview

Join feisty teen activist Jane Ray as she embarks on a wild adventure to save a captive elephant.

In this exciting and timely addition to the popular Jane Ray's Wildlife Rescue series, young activist Jane Ray faces the challenges and rewards of animal rescue and rehabilitation. Readers and educators alike will enjoy the fascinating information, interactive resources and animal rescue tips.

When a film production company arrives in Cedar's Ridge to shoot a movie, everyone in the city is excited -- except Jane Ray. One of the film stars is not being treated very well: Gaia the elephant is kept in tiny quarters and forced to kneel, walk and trumpet on command. Jane soon learns that Animal Actors Inc. wants to buy Gaia from the local zoo and put her to work, and Jane is determined to sabotage the plans. When the sale falls through and Gaia is scheduled to be euthanized, Jane decides it's up to her to save Gaia's life and restore the elephant's freedom.
