Anti-poaching rangers reunite lost elephant calf with its mother

May 28, 2015

This Tuesday, rangers were informed that a very young elephant calf had wandered off and lost its mother and herd. The Anti-Poaching Team quickly went to the calf's rescue - the herd was over 2 kilometres away when they arrived.

The rangers carefully steered and walked the young calf towards its family until it was very close, and its mother came straight over and took him back! If the calf had not been reunited with its family, its chances of survival would have been very slim. A pride of over 10 lions was on its trail, hoping to have a chance to hunt it down.

This week, we will be sharing some stories of how our Anti-Poaching Team is helping protect elephant in northern Kenya, a population of close to 6,500 animals. Remember, every elephant life counts!
