Being the new kid in town isn’t always easy, unless you happen to be an elephant. In that case you’re sure to be greeted with open hearts and snuggly trunks. Check out the heartwarming video below to watch a herd of elephants welcome an adopted baby elephant to their family.

The video, made by the Save the Elephants Foundation, captures a herd of elephants at the Elephant Nature Park as they rush to greet a newly adopted baby elephant named Dok Geaw.

Elephants are known for their intelligence and complex level of understanding and cooperation, so it’s not a huge surprise that the entire herd would so gladly welcome a stranger into the mix. No matter what species, it’s always encouraging to see kindness and love in action.
