@David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Many of these elephants have been traumatized, after watching their parents killed. When they arrive, each orphan gets caretakers that stay with them 24/7, including sleeping with them. The loving keepers become substitute "parents", giving the babies the best possible chance of survival, and good mental health, and the best chance to return to the wild some day. #animals&people

I broke my baby elephant’s heart: Daphne Sheldrick has dedicated her life to elephants, but she’s learned the hard way that they really do never forget

An awesome charity in Kenya that helps with conservation, rescue and management of orphaned elephants, rhinos, and other wildlife. They do great work! Some of the stories are heartbreaking, but it's good to know they're in good hands.
