Better elephant news: babies!

January 27, 2012

Better news for elephants today, from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. When we were in Nairobi, we visited the elephant orphanage at Sheldrick, an incredible day. The mama and baby elephants in this video are at their preserve in East Tsavo. The orphans were rescued as babies when their mothers are killed, almost always by poachers. They are growing up and having babies of their own. Watch the community welcome the new baby. It’s really something special.

You can also read the story with photos and find out about fostering baby elephants here.
