A trapped elephant struggles in thick mud in Kenya’s Nannapa Conservancy. Passing herders alerted the conservancy manager to his plight, and veterinarians and rangers launched a rescue. Using a tractor, towropes, and their hands, they freed the exhausted animal. The image was published in July 2021.
