Sunday marked World Elephant Day when wildlife experts take the time to highlight the plight of elephants.
Threats from poaching and habitat loss continue to plague the species. The number of African elephants has plummeted from about 5 million a century ago to about 400,000 remaining today.
But at one sanctuary in Nairobi, Kenya, orphaned baby elephants are given a chance at survival in the wild. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust takes on the responsibility of raising the babies after their mothers have been killed by poachers.
