 Albino elephant in Amboseli National Park

A young albino elephant was born recently in Amboseli National Park. This was an unusual sighting in the famous park whose elephants are the world’s longest studied.


The Kenya Wildlife Service team and other scientists based in the park are closely monitoring any developments.

Lekishon Kenana, a Kenya Wildlife Service senior scientist in charge of the Southern Conservation Area, took the attached picture and has video footage as well. We are willing to share it as well as allow media crews to tour the world-famous park.

The albino baby elephant was first sighted by the Amboseli Elephant Research team in Amboseli National Park.

The team  based in the park recorded the unique sighting and uploaded the video footage on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkSPgU9Yb3Q&feature=channel_video_title

The Amboseli Elephant Research Project is the longest study of wild elephants in the world. The team works to understand the lives and ensure the future of 1,500 elephants in the Amboseli ecosystem fed by the waters of Kilimanjaro.

We will provide more information as and when it becomes available.
