When Naledi’s mother died, she didn’t know who would take care of her: a group of men in Botswana.
A stunning clip from Vulcan Productions’ upcoming “Naledi” perfectly captures how much one man’s devotion to this baby elephant’s life means to her.
The film aims to highlight the plight of African elephants, who are being killed faster than they are born. These elephants are fighting for their own lives, as well as for the survival of their species.
“One of these guardians has been given a difficult task: to count every elephant in Africa in a desperate attempt to help them survive,” the film’s website explains. “Now, he must race to protect an entire species while fighting to save a single life.”
Little Naledi seems quite a handful – but a welcome one.
