Elephant Diaries, Series 2 Episode 3 of 5

A new baby orphan has been rescued in Tsavo, but needs to be flown to Nairobi if it is to survive. At the nursery, Michaela Strachan follows the extraordinarily intense bond that has developed between the orphan herd's mini-matriarch Lualeni and the youngest orphan, Makena. But how will they react to the arrival of Chyulu, the new and very needy rescued baby?

Poaching is a major cause of elephants being orphaned. In Tsavo, Jonathan Scott goes on bush patrol with a team from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to see what's being done. And elsewhere in Tsavo, the Trust's vet undertakes a dangerous and dramatic attempt to rescue a young elephant from a poacher's snare.
