What do baby elephants choose to eat when they step out for their lunch break? Let’s go on an adventure in Kenya with a GoPro camera to find out!
This video was shot with a GoPro camera to get some unique shots that really show how the elephants eat up close, and from their perspective. We get to see elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya reach their trunks high up into the tree, retrieve food, then place it in their mouths. They also appear to like the grass too.
Elephants are awesome creatures, but they’re dwindling in population. In the 1970s and 1980s, the African elephant population was cut in half from 1.3 million animals to roughly 600,000! Today, it is estimated that between 35,000 and 50,000 African elephants are poached each year to satisfy the global demand for ivory.
