Elephants play too | Africa Media Online: A baby elephant, Nchan, steps on the ball as she plays soccer at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya, October 27, 2009. The elephants are orphans that have been rescued from various parts of the country after their parents were killed by poachers. After spending two years in the Trust, they are integrated into the wild at the Tsavo National Park.
My first sponsored ele - Nchan. I hope she is happy in the great beyond. A beautiful photo of Nchan showing off elephants' playful and sociable nature. Sadly Nchan died in 2010 after a year in the nursery but photos like this only show how important is is to continue the work that we do.
