Almost a month after rescuing a frantic baby elephant from a well in the Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, the Amboseli Trust for Elephants has saved another elephant from a precarious situation–this time a five-day-old calf from a muddy pond.
This rescue is equally as heartwarming as the previous one, especially as you watch the baby elephant walk toward its human guardians with its trunk held high, seemingly knowing they are there to help. “With approximately 230 calves born since October last year, we are always on the lookout for those in need of a helping hand,” a member of the Amboseli National Trust wrote about the YouTube video.
The calf’s mother, who is called “Zahava,” wraps her trunk around it once they are reunited.
The Amboseli Trust for Elephants is a nonprofit registered in the U.S. and Kenya. Since 1972 it has worked to “ensure the long-term conservation and welfare of Africa’s elephants in the context of human needs and pressures through scientific research, training, community outreach, public awareness, and advocacy,” according to its website.
