Elephant gives birth

653

Emily was orphaned as a baby elephant and went to live with the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya. She has since been released into the wild again as a chance to live as a free adult. On December 23rd, 2014, she gave the caretakers an incredible early Christmas present.

She returned to the foster home completely of her own accord, to give birth to her calf and environment that she knew was safe. The caretakers at the trust felt really honoured that Emily believed that they had done such a good job with her as a child, that she would want them to be a part of her own children’s lives.

Now Emily has two daughters of her own, the calf born in this video is named Emma and she has an older sister named Eve. You can see that the herd was excited when they saw the brand-new beautiful calf.
