When an eight-month-old baby elephant fell into a well, it was up to a team of conservationists at Amboseli Trust for Elephants to figure out a way to get her out. They captured the rescue operation on video and the story has gone viral, thanks to a beautifully happy ending and rather hilarious commentary from off camera: "So this is Zombe's calf, who we're all delighted is so big and fat and healthy until we have to pull her out of a hole!" The nonprofit works to protect and study elephants in Kenya's Amboseli National Park and they have a fantastic YouTube channel documenting their work.
