Much of what we know about wild African elephants is based on the studies by The Amboseli Trust for Elephants. Founded in 1972 by Cynthia Moss and Harvey Croze, the Amboseli Elephant Research Project researches the behaviour of wild elephants and gathers data about their biology. Today, over 40 years since it was launched, they are following some of the same individual elephants they met back in 1972. In 2012, they came across a baby elephant in dire need of help. Its mother, Zahava, was frustrated by her inability to help her child. Thankfully, members of the Amboseli Trust for Elephants were ready to help. When the baby was rescued and returned to its mother, her reaction was unbelievable.
