Recently, when Irland was in Terai, Nepal researching elephants who were sick with the waterborne disease Schistosomiasis, she became enthralled by how much the elephants loved being in the Rapti River. She attached her camcorder to the neck of one of the elephants to shoot underwater footage. The waterproof casing leaked and ruined the camera, but the film survived and provides this glimpse of what it would be like to see through an elephant's eyes while submerged. Irland also worked with students at the Kathmandu University Department of Music who wrote an original song about elephants for the soundtrack.
