Photo by @amivitale for @natgeo. Lkalatian Lopeta (right), a Samburu wildlife ranger, and staff from the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) guard the two-week-old elephant Kinya. She was found trapped in a hand-dug well by Samburu warriors who sent word to Reteti. The wildlife keepers waited more than a day to see if Kinya's family herd would return, then decided to bring her back to the sanctuary for safekeeping.
