This baby elephant is an orphan at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust near Nairobi, Kenya. The trust takes in young elephants and rhinos orphaned by poaching, rehabilitates them and put them back into the wild – mostly into Tsavo National Park.
Black Bean Productions spent a while at the orphanage filming the elephants and came across this delightful scene of an elephant keeper massaging a baby elephant’s trunk. The massage helps to clean the inside of the trunk. The youngster is clearly loving the process and attention.
