Second Chance shows Peter Mbulu looking over two orphaned elephants. Peter is one of the dedicated Elephant Keepers at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya. These two calves, under six months of age, will eventually be reintroduced into the wild. This is a long process that could take ten years before they become fully independent. Until that time, the Keepers and the other orphans are their new family. Young calves are emotionally very sensitive and will suffer physically and possibly die if separated from someone they've become particularly close to. To prevent this from happening, the orphans are discouraged from becoming too attached to just one person by having them handled by a large team of Keepers rather than one or two individuals. The blankets are for warmth and protection from the sun. The calves will no longer need them around age two.
