2022: The extremely rare twins, a boy and a girl, were first discovered in January in the Samburu National Reserve in Northern Kenya. They were the first elephant twins to be born in the area for nearly two decades.
2022-03-23: Save the Elephants' Head of Field Operations, David Daballen said in a statement it was "incredible news."For months after the initial sighting, the twins were not seen, leaving conservationists to ponder their fate. However, over March 19 and 20, they were spotted alive and well by lion protection project Ewaso Lions. "Despite the terrible drought, Bora has managed to feed the babies and keep them alive. Twin elephants rarely survive so we are absolutely delighted with this news," he said. "It just goes to show how resilient elephants are and what wonderful mothers they make. We look forward to monitoring their progress."
