When this Kenyan journalist was reporting on how human actions are destroying habitats, a group of elephants behind him got very friendly. About halfway through the clip that has now gone viral, a baby elephant behind the reporter starts to move his trunk on the man’s head before reaching all the way around.

The elephant reaches around and starts smelling and tickling the man’s face through his trunk. The reporter starts to giggle, and the elephant seemed to think it was funny too. The reporter was working on a piece for the Sheldrick Elephant Nursery in Nairobi for the local channel KBC. The organization works to protect wildlife and preserve habitats in East Africa.

If you would like to support this organization and learn more about the work they are doing to save elephants, check out Sheldrick Elephant Nursery’s website.
