In the last 20 years Kenya's elephant population has flourished to more than double it's previous figures. The non-profit - "The Amboseli Trust For Elephants" has been fighting for the conservation of elephants for over a decade and just stated that over 170 calves have been birthed in the park this year.
There was even a set of twins!
Record rains have put an end to droughts making it easier for animals to survive, this combined with the preservation of the animals by trusts like this has helped numbers of Elephant, as well as other rare species like Tigers and Rhino's flourish.
The Kenyan government's effort to crack down on hunters and poachers also needs to be commended, and hopefully with mindful Safari tourism, and eco-friendly projects like this we can help restore the natural eco-system to it's full glory.
