The Birth of a Baby Elephant

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

Emily, an orphan elephant raised by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa who is now living in the wild, returned to the trust’s stockades to give birth

This was a true testament to the loving care she received and the continuing connection she feels for her rescuers.

Watch the amazing birth footage as well as the celebration that Emily and her fellow elephants revel in with trumpets and heartfelt welcomes.

It’s the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
The Circle of Life
