Sheldrick Trust

You can’t go wrong with elephant photos, as the proliferation of “Emergency Elephant” type Twitter accounts attests. These come from the Instagram account of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya. What’s more adorable than a baby elephant being fed from a giant baby bottle? Nothing, that’s what. For almost 40 years the trust has been nurturing orphaned elephants and rhinos and helping them transition back to life in the wild. They report 150 success stories over the years, bringing happy endings to tragic beginnings. Fostering an elephant is inexpensive, which I’ve found to be the case with other charities as well. You can also support a rhino or giraffe.

The way things are going, the need for DSWT’s services – including their anti-poaching work – will be needed ever more urgently over the years to come.
