Friendly Baby Elephants Enable Stunning Film Capture of Their Herd


YouTube Link

This is an unusual elephant video in that it is shot from much closer range than usual, thanks to a couple of baby elephants. Bryan Christy was shooting an investigative piece for National Geographic called “Tracking Ivory.” While filming, Christy came across a group of elephant calves at a wildlife preserve in Kenya. 

The babies quickly became friendly with Christy, to the point that they led him to a group of mature wild elephants, which he proceeded to film. Without the calves leading Christy into the herd, he would have been in danger. But as it was, the herd remained calm, and Christy was able to capture this stunning close-up footage.
