Although we are taught to not meddle in the affairs of animals in nature, they are sometimes in need of a helping hand. That’s where elephant rescue organizations come in.

These wildlife organizations work tirelessly to save those elephants who might otherwise not survive on their own, such as elephant calves who become orphaned or those elephants who have been targeted with poisoned arrows by poachers. These elephant super heroes work everyday to find, help, and rehabilitate an elephant in need.

In the video above, watch as the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and the Amboseli Trust for Elephants (ATE) work together to get a five-day-old elephant calf stuck in a deep, muddy pond reunited with its mother.
