Twin baby elephants have been seen last week at the Samburu National Reserve in Northern Kenya. Tour guides from Elephant Watch Camp (EWC) first saw the male and female calves out on the camp. They are just the second set ever to have been discovered by the charity called Save the Elephants (STE), which trains EWC tour guides about the different elephant groups. Iain Douglas-Hamilton, the founder of STE, said that this is a difficult time for the twins as the previously discovered set had not survived long after birth 15 years ago. He added that mother elephants usually “do not have enough milk to support two calves.” The two baby elephants are Bora’s second and third since giving birth on her first in 2017. On the other hand, according to the Kenya Wildlife Service, its elephant population as of 2020 has improved (from 16,000 to 34,800) since 1989 after a series of illegal hunting for ivory.
