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.

Wow, amazing, have you been here?
Yes I visited while I was in Kenya. As a matter of fact every time I’ve been in Kenya I have dropped by there to see the little darlings. It’s a wonderful organization
Well, when we go to Kenya (one day, not on the next 3 years list, but on the list) we will put this down as a site to go too! Thanks Lissa!
