More good work by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Africa:

The rescue of Mteto – 6/8/2017 – watch the video here

This orphaned elephant baby, about 10 months old, was found in the Tsavo East National park, near a carcass of an adult elephant killed for its ivory. Members of the Trust, fed the baby, hydrated her and they continue to care for her and many other orphans at the preserve.

The organization was founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, in honour of the memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE. They also help move elephants from farm land to reduce conflicts between people and the animals. I’m proud to sponsor them and encourage others to also.
