Baby Elephant Gets A Trunk Massage From Carer

This baby elephant is one of many orphans rescued and rehabilitated by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust near Nairobi, Kenya.

The trust was founded in 1977 and is today one of the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation programs in the world.

The wonderful footage below, thanks to Black Bean Productions, shows an elephant keeper massaging one of the orphans trunks. This helps to clean the inside of the trunk and apparently the youngster loves the feeling…
