Elephant Camera Trap Video Shows Baby Animals Playing In Cambodia's Seima Protection Forest

These frolicking, playful baby elephants will make your day.

They live in Cambodia's Seima Protection Forest, a former logging area that was transformed in 2009 into a nature preserve the size of Yosemite. The footage comes from camera traps set up by the Wildlife Conservation Society and released in celebration of Earth Day.

Elephant poaching is still a serious problem around the world, spurred by a thriving illicit ivory market where tusks can sell for more than $1,300 a pound, according to a report by The New York Times.
