Then he started pulling all the palm leaves out. But there was only one bull. You have to be very close to her trunk and she has to feel your face, your nose. It's always a risk putting any animal or human being under anaesthetic, always. One thing is for sure: if they're not looked after, they ain't gonna be here for tomorrow, as plain and simple as that. About to have a baby.
In the Abu herd, we've got Cathy. How can you conserve something which you don't know anything about? They're free-ranging during the day, feeding, drinking, mud-wallowing. So I'm very proud of her. She is still a baby, you know? Chase explains that those who employ the poachers — the distributors of ivory — actually want the elephants to go extinct. We all thought she was going to come directly to us, but look at her. I tried to rub it around her lower lips.
The other ones, they are from the zoo or circus environment. Now, is Cathy producing enough milk? Naledi, now she's becoming an elephant. This is a daunting project of massive proportions, which has never been attempted. So what can we do to make sure that we give her more chances? Wonderful, look forward to that. I've documented with regret the retreat of elephants from habitats that were rapidly recolonizing.
Humans, if you can call them that, hunting those majestic animals, out of greed or just for trophies should be severely punished for what they did and should be set as an example to others to prevent such barbarism happening again. There's just a lot that she has to learn. They show how they took care of her while being sick and other stuff. Land that used to belong to the elephants has been eroded away and settled by people. Just a nice big circle. This is one of the last strongholds for African elephants. At the very least it makes a fine companion piece to The Ivory Game and the early scenes of Naledi are worth seeing all by themselves.
She's gained weight, she's very playful. Imagine what he could be just to be given another five years. He's a target for poachers. We'll take to the skies. I missed you, man, hey? That gets her trunk up. Stay up to date on all the latest Naledi and elephant news.
It's all very interesting to watch. It's the most important day in Naledi's life. The country has always been at the helm of elephant conservation. Pregnant elephant not giving birth is covered! Come, Lorato, yeah, good girl. I've tried to rub the milk formula around Cathy's breasts. We counted just 33 elephants and 55 elephant carcasses. I'm very happy, to be honest with you, with what is happening with Naledi, the way she is being accepted by the herd.
It's happening on our watch. She's had a very stressful day and she's just drained. I'm just wondering why he would be a little skittish and shy. Points to the filmmakers for that. When she's suddenly orphaned at one month of age, it's up to the men who look after her herd to save her life. Are we in the national park now? The family of elephants was shot multiple times. She's always been there for Naledi.
She'll pick up her scent just now, I'm sure. Is Lorato coming over first? I would like to see Naledi live out a natural life as wild as possible, and that's the decision that she will ultimately have to make. She's living off body fats, essentially, that's what's keeping her going, and when those reserves have run out, it's a very quick deterioration. Here we go, here we go. We're offering her powdered milk. I don't think I brought enough data sheets to record all the human settlement. Imagine what he could be just to be given another five years.
