The people that work at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, have extraordinary dedication to orphaned elephants and rhinos!  Many of these orphans 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.

The men and women that work at The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT), have such extraordinary dedication to orphaned elephants and black rhinos! Get involved, support them by sharing this post & for those can, please donate or adopt a baby elephant.

At The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the bonds between the keepers and baby elephants are so important to their development. This is Jackson with Kinango.

“The experience [visiting the DSWT] was both joyful and humbling," Nyong’o says. "Most of the baby elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust had been orphaned due to poaching. The tragedy and loss they suffered did not escape me.

We rescued #Ndotto in 2014, when he was just 48 hours old. He’s had an infectiously cheerful personality since day one, and loves to make everyone — human and elephant — happy. We can usually find him roping a fellow orphan into a game or running up and down the rope cordon to greet visitors! Help this special little elephant grow by fostering him today.
