I’ve had the great privilege of visiting The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi a couple of times. Here incredible work is being done in rescuing and rehabilitating orphaned elephants and rhinos. There are currently 29 babies in their care, all have lost their mothers to poaching, human-wildlife conflict or even after falling down wells. To date they have successfully hand-raised over 150 orphan elephants and successfully reintegrated them back into the wild herds of Tsavo, with many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned now roaming free. My hope is that this video will inspire you to visit their website to see how you can support their work. Or even to foster a baby.
