Baby Elephant is Born – level 1

04-01-2017 07:00

A baby Asian elephant is born in the UK. It is a girl. Other elephants come to meet her. This is a big event for the herd. It is a big moment for all Asian elephants, too.

Asian elephants are in danger. They are dying out. They get sick, lose their homes, and have problems with people.

The zoo hopes that the baby elephant can help. It can teach people about Asian elephants.

Difficult words: herd (a group of animals such as elephants or cows), die out (if a type of animal dies out, there is no animal of this type).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
