Sunyei, a newborn elephant, was abandoned in the vast and perilous African bush almost 20 years ago. Sunyei was only a few days old and had been orphaned after being removed from her mother, thus she needed to be saved as soon as possible.
Despite the fact that she did not have a biological mother, she never lacked the love and care that a father can provide since she was saved in time. Sunyei got assistance from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, and she became a vital part of the Elephant and Rhinoceros orphanage from that point on.
In this location, he met Benjamin, the guy in charge of the orphanage’s nursery and the ‘adoptive father’ of orphaned elephants.
The sanctuary’s executive director, Rob Brandford, told The Dodo:
“He organizes the orphans’ daily care and well-being, ensuring that they are always happy and healthy.”
Sunyei was placed in Benjamin’s care, and the guy ensured that she was happy, comfortable, and, most importantly, healthy from that point on. Sunyei gradually learnt from Benjamin and the other caretakers so that she could stand up for herself and be a regular elephant.
“While it’s been almost a decade since Sunyei opted to return to nature, it appears she never forgot the kindness they offered her.”
The elephant was always thankful to her keepers, as seen by her decision to leave nature and welcome her companion Benjamin.
But what surprised me the most was that she not only came out to say hello, but she also brought her kid to meet the guy who reared her. Because it demonstrates the intellect of the elephants, the emotional scene caught in a video has created a sensation in the orphanage’s social networks.
Rob continued, saying:
“The desire of a fully grown and wild elephant to bring a new youngster to the human family that nurtured her tells volumes about her intelligence and sense of family.”
This is most likely why you returned, and it was also a comfortable location to introduce your infant.
Sunyei still has a very tight relationship with all of her carers, and she considers them all to be members of her extended family.
Sunyei’s visit was not her last, as she has returned multiple times since that day to meet her pals.
The wonderful thing is that these frequent visits let all of your previous breeders to observe their little baby develop. After all, Benjamin and the other caretakers’ efforts made it possible for the next generation of Sunyei to become a reality.
