The thing about elephants is…..

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.10498091_10152615433154889_1125201735462908517_o

via @DSWT Little Ndotto’s progress

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.

On World Elephant Day, our No.1 Reason to love elephants: they protect the vulnerable

10474199_10152600809284889_1158069044112135924_n

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.
