This month marks Kerrio’s one-year #rescueversary. When she arrived into our care, we wondered if she would ever walk again. Now, she's always on the move & we can only catch up with her when she pauses to eat (or be with 'her' Naleku)! Read Kerrio's story sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/o…

Time for evening milk bottles — and someone's feeling VERY dramatic! Mukutan's such a milk menace - wanting & pushing for more - that he's been moved to the last group to minimise the mayhem. He may be last in line, but he makes his presence known. (Sound on for the full effect!)

Esoit really wants another full bottle of #milk! You can help him, and all the milk-dependent orphan #elephants in our care, realise their milk dreams by donating towards a bottle of the white stuff at sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/s…

He's alive, but without help this drying up dam was set to become this elephant's tomb. Rangers work to get straps around him so that he can be pulled out using vehicles! He is 1 of 3 #elephants saved from this fate in the last 3 weeks. Read the story sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/n…

Tsavo always experiences dry periods, but with no meaningful rain for 7 mths, this dry season is getting tough. Our #water projects are yet again proving to be a lifesaver, with wild bulls literally queuing up to take their fill. Help us keep the taps on sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/p…

We rescued Suguroi in 2021, after a helicopter pilot spotted a lone calf stood beside her dead mother. If he hadn't, she'd not be alive today! Timid at first, she's developed into a feisty calf - which we love to see - read her story sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/o… #FosterFriday

It’s a special someone’s honorary birthday! Just days old when rescued 8 yrs ago - found among a herd of livestock - he’s been with us ever since. One of the most gentle, playful, & loving #elephants we’ve ever raised. Celebrate Ndotto’s #birthday with us sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/o…

Almost got away with it! Our Keepers need eyes in the back of their head to keep the 'kids' in check. With 2 decades experience in #elephant parenting, a wagging finger is all Benjamin needs to remind Siangiki there's no climbing on the terrace! #respect sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/o…

Rescued orphan Latika has employed her own unique eating style since joining us: bending her elbows, seemingly kneeling. It's earned her the affectionate nickname 'warthog'. Now we have caught Tingai trying her technique... he must think she's onto something!

Today, our Ithumba orphans delighted when joined at the water trough by a wild bull; as others shaded under a tree. The protagonist, a regular, clearly enjoys the adulation he gets from the youngsters. Social interactions with wild #elephants are key to successful reintegration
