The bond shared between animals and their parents is just as strong as that in humans. With this in mind, when a baby animal loses their parent – for any reason, the impact is absolutely devastating.

Sadly, many baby wild animals are forced to face this tragedy as a result of poaching and the illegal wildlife trade. Many think that when an elephant is killed for their tusks, for example, they are the only victim. But what we don’t realize is that these animals live in family and social groups as complex as our own. And many times, when an adult is killed, they leave behind children.

Thankfully, there are many kind individuals and organizations working to help these orphans, and slowly but surely, help them learn to love again.

All the animals featured in this video have seen the worst side of human greed and malice, but they have also learned the power of love and compassion.

These babies serve as a pertinent reminder of the consequences of our actions. We all have the power to help orphaned babies like these little ones by learning about the illegal wildlife trade and raising awareness. Together, we can build a happier future for all these animals and many more to come.
