MEG RYAN is set to trumpet about the plight of Thailand's dwindling numbers of wild elephants in a TV documentary.
The 60-minute show is being produced by Britain's TIGRESS PRODUCTIONS company.
The SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE (1993) star, who arrived in Thailand on Sunday (17JUN01), is due to travel to several locations in the country for the programme, which aims to promote elephant conservation. The elephant is the Thailand's national animal but has suffered from a rapid destruction of its natural habitat in recent decades. (KW/WNWCAN)
