Sheldrick Wildlife Trust often takes to Instagram to share various stories of elephants. Involved with rescue and rehabilitation of the gentle giants, the Insta page of this rescue centre is filled with posts that may leave people emotional. There is now a latest edition to that list and it is the tale of a baby elephant named Choka.
“Meet Choka! He may be the smallest elephant at our Nairobi Nursery, but already he has overcome enormous tragedy. After his mother died in the drought, Choka was found huddled by her side. His condition had failed alongside his mother’s, and we had to fight hard to bring him back from the brink,” they wrote.
In the next few lines, they explained more about the hardships this adorable creature faced. “Choka’s name means “exhausted” in Swahili. He was rescued at a challenging time, as many elephants succumbed to desperately dry conditions. It feels all the more special that this lion-hearted little calf beat the odds and is so full of life today. Despite the personal loss he suffered, Choka has embraced his new family with gusto and can always be found at the heart of the Nursery herd.” they added.
Take a look at the video showcasing the little elephant’s antics:
