A few days ago I watched a beautiful and very emotional documentary “Naledi: One Little Elephant“. It’s a true-life story about a baby elephant Naledi born into a rescue camp in the wilderness of Botswana. She’s orphaned at one month of age. She was depressed, she didn’t want to eat and almost died. After her mommy died, she stayed with the herd but she didn’t have enough milk to eat and she was getting frightenedly underweight.
A dedicated team from the rescue camp in the wilderness of Botswana couldn’t watch little Naledi loosing her battle and they took her away from the herd in the camp where they nursed her 24h a day. It was a very though decision but the only thing they could do to save little Naledi. They finally managed to find appropriate milk for her and she started eating. This amazing team was her “mother”, they were everything to her. They played, slept, ate and laughed together. After a baby elephant Naledi recovered she went back to the herd.
