Last week our teams were called to the Ndoto Mountains to rescue the tiniest baby elephant we have ever cared for.

Rescued by helicopter, this tiny bundle was delivered to the Nairobi Nursery wrapped in a blanket, his ears still petal pink. Our elephant keepers looked on in disbelief as this tiny package was unwrapped.

We named him Ndotto after his home, a beautiful and remote mountain range in northern Kenya.

Ndotto has not yet been placed on the fostering program, but we wanted to share a short film to show how he is doing a week down the line.

We thank all those people involved in saving Ndotto and the kindhearted Samburu community who went to such lengths to keep him safe.

Our Reason to love elephants No. 6: They’re among the most social mammals around

Elephants form extremely strong social bonds and love nothing more than a reassuring touch. But they have their own shared language which we can’t hear… imagine what they might be saying!
