Back in 2006, specialists from the Kenyan Wildlife Conservation Center rescued a cute baby elephant. The girl was named Loijuk.
When she was left alone, she almost died. At first, among people, the baby suffered from thirst and hunger, she could not stand on her own. The specialists of the Center did their best to help her.
When Loijuk got stronger, she was given to her family, to adult elephants. The elephant did not forget the kind people and regularly visited them in the reserve.
When Loijuk was 14 years old, she came to her rescuers not alone, but with her daughter. The staff of the Center named her Lily.
The mother elephant allowed the chief caretaker of the Center to stroke the newborn baby and even breathe into her trunk so that Lily could get acquainted with the smell of a person.
Elephants settled next to people, mother and her daughter live in the reserve, where people take care of them and feed them.
Animals are friendlier than we think. Our responsibility is to take care of them and protect them. It’s impossible to imagine our lives without them. They teach us to love, be kind and caring. We are nature and they are nature.
