Riski lives at the Elephant Safari Park at Taro near Ubud in central Bali which was created in 1997 and is a full elephant experience. Nigel Mason, the founder of the park, talks us through her remarkable birth, captured on camera.
It wasn’t all sweetness and light. It was touch and go for a few minutes as Riski did not start breathing when she was delivered. Her Mum frantically and instinctively did what was necessary to jump start little Riski’s still-born body back to life. It’s truly amazing.
