Drought has forced a family of elephants from the safety of Samburu National Reserve to look for food dangerously close to a busy main road. One of the females has a calf, just a week old, but with so little food available she’s struggling to provide enough milk for her baby. The family desperately need the rains to arrive and the view from space shows that they are just days away.
