Baby Elephant Orphanage…

David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, is on the outskirts of Nairobi. At 11:00am, people gather to learn about the babies and how they became orphans. One poor little girl was found with her trunk caught in a snare and almost cut off. Surgery reconnected it but she pulled the stitches out. They say she is doing so well…

The program encourages people to “adopt” them for $50 a year. In return you receive privileges, etc.

The babies are given one man to live with them till 4 years old when they are reintroduced to a wild herd to again be adopted by their new family of elephants.
