NATURE: Naledi: One Little Elephant

Nature_Naledi_Dr_Mike_ChaseKiti, a gentle elephant in Botswana, is in her 661st day of pregnancy, a normal gestation period, when she finally gives birth to a baby girl, whom the staff of Abu Camp, a halfway house for orphaned and former zoo and circus elephants, eventually calls Naledi.

Naledi was an instant hit with the Abu Camp caretakers, including elephant manager Wellington “Wellie” Jana and wildlife biologist and Botswana native Dr. Mike Chase, who is also tasked with looking after Naledi’s herd. They hope Naledi and Kiti will have the option to be reunited with their extended family.

But six weeks after giving birth, Kiti dies from a prolapse of the large intestine, and Naledi is left an orphan.

How the dedicated caretakers rally to adopt the baby elephant, save her life, and reintroduce her to the herd that had forgotten her, is the focus of "Naledi: One Little Elephant, A Nature Special Presentation."
