Christian and Ginette Leroy took rare footage of the birth of an elephant. The birth was filmed at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) in Chobe National Park, Botswana, a nonprofit based in Kenya. Once the momma elephant gives birth, she and her newborn are surrounded by members of the herd.
They are all eager to meet and protect the new baby. They use their tusks gently to sweep dust over his body to help protect his skin from the sun. You can hear the joyful trumpeting sounds they make to welcome the newest member of their herd!
