  • ITV News published this video item, entitled “Elephant baby boom in Kenya’s national parks | ITV News” – below is their description.

    Whisper it quietly but in the grasslands of Kenya’s national parks, something good, at last, is happening to the elephant population. There’s a baby boom. Kenya has twice as many elephants now as it did thirty years ago, though the figure – 35,000 – is still just a fraction of what it once was. In one particular park, Amboseli, they’ve had a record number of calves 205 – with the biggest birth month – December still to come. The reason? Plenty of rain which means plenty of grass, so more of the calves survive.
