Orphans no more

An inspirational story of human beings are coming to the rescue for baby elephants. The problem of course, is that humans are the reason why baby elephants need rescuing.

That’s where the Nairobi nursery of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust comes in. It’s an orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation center, presumably one of the most successful in the world. It takes in elephants from all over Kenya, nurses them until they no longer need milk (and provides them with raincoats!), and slowly reintroduces them to the wild. So far, it has successfully rescued more than a hundred orphans.
