NPR – Amboseli National Park in Kenya is experiencing something of an elephant baby boom.

There are several threats to elephant populations — climate change related drought, clashes with farmers whose land the elephants trample and poachers who illegally hunt and kill the animals for their valuable tusks.

Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife, Najib Balala, says that growth in elephant population is in part due to the country’s efforts to stop poachers.
