Every day at the DSWT is World Elephant Day! But today is a chance for us to celebrate the species together and let the world know why they need our protection.
Watch as our Nursery Head Keeper, Edwin Lusichi, takes you on a journey in his life – caring for orphaned baby elephants in Nairobi, today and everyday.

once you start advocating on their behalf it’s hard to stop. How do you say ” I can’t do this, it’s too hard” .So I don’t. Here forthwith is the cutest and youngest baby elephant ever rescued by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Watch amazing video of this baby at the end of this post.

Last week our teams were called to the Ndoto Mountains to rescue the tiniest baby elephant we have ever cared for.
Rescued by helicopter, this tiny bundle was delivered to the Nairobi Nursery wrapped in a blanket, his ears still petal pink. Our elephant keepers looked on in disbelief as this tiny package was unwrapped.
We named him Ndotto after his home, a beautiful and remote mountain range in northern Kenya.
Ndotto has not yet been placed on the fostering program, but we wanted to share a short film to show how he is doing a week down the line.
We thank all those people involved in saving Ndotto and the kindhearted Samburu community who went to such lengths to keep him safe.
Watch this amazing video:
When threatened, an elephant herd will form a circle, enclosing the most vulnerable – the elderly, the sick, the young – on the inside.
As we celebrate our love for elephants today, it’s important to recognise this is a species under serious threat.
We’re doing all we can to protect the vulnerable – orphaned, injured and threatened by poaching and you can help too.

Worrisome figures in this infographic by The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and iWorry. 90% of Africa’s elephants have been killed in the past 74 years and the number of orphans they rescue keeps going up.
