The arrival of a newborn animal is always a beautiful and heartwarming sight, even more so when it belongs to an endangered species.
This was the case in a recent video that surfaced on the internet, featuring a herd of elephants gathering around a pregnant elephant as she gave birth to her calf.
Watch the video at the end.
Elephants are known for their tight-knit communities and highly empathetic nature, and the video shows the members of the herd, mostly female, coming together to support the mother during her delivery.
The video showcases the moment the baby elephant’s head began to crown, as the amniotic sac was exposed, and the calf was born successfully.
Although the newborn was still wrapped tightly in its amniotic sac, it soon raised its head to greet the world for the first time.
The surrounding community of elephants welcomed the newcomer with a sense of joy and wonder, offering it protection and comfort.
Elephants are remarkable creatures that have been observed forming strong bonds with each other and even mourning each other’s deaths. They can live up to 60-70 years, relying on the strength of their relationships with each other to survive.
However, despite their resilience, elephants remain vulnerable to extinction. Their populations are declining at an alarming rate due to poaching, habitat loss, and human-wildlife conflict.
It is crucial to increase conservation efforts to protect this magnificent species and ensure their survival.
The video serves as a reminder of the beauty of life and the importance of preserving it. It is a heartwarming moment captured on camera, showing the power of community and empathy in the animal kingdom.
