"The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction." - Rachel Carson  We hope everyone had a joyous and thoughtful Earth Day. If you are interested in making a donation in honor of Mother Earth to support the Reteti herd, and the community-based conservation we are fostering in Northern Kenya, we would be tremendously grateful. (Link to donation page in profile.) Thank you to all of your for your ongoing support and your love for our herd and our team.

Sweet Shaba and Nadasoit together. When Nadasoit came to us, Shaba quickly took her under her care, and the two were inseparable. Now that Nadasoit is getting older (she turned 1 this month) she's starting to care for and look after the younger ones. It's so beautiful to see love learned and shared.  Thank you to @elephantcooperation who have adopted and are providing full support for Shaba and Nadasoit for the whole year. We are beyond grateful.  Thank you too to our recent visitors @leavingtheframe for this lovely photo.  @conservationorg @glassybaby @lifeisgoodco @yachakyerbamate @tusk_org @sandiegozoo @natgeo @nrt_kenya @kenyawildlifeservice #bekindtoelephants #stoppoaching #elephants #dontletthemdisappear #kenya #magicalkenya #africa #whyilovekenya #babyelephants #cuteanimals

What a pleasure a mudbath is! Thank you @amivitale for always capturing the best of our days and thank you for your recent visit! Can’t wait to see the pics! ❀️🐘 And, as always, thank you to all of our supporters who make these wonderful moments happen: @conservationorg @glassybaby@lifeisgoodco @yachakorganic @tusk_org@sandiegozoo @natgeo @nrt_kenya @kenyawildlifeservice and you.  #bekindtoelephants #stoppoaching#elephants #dontletthemdisappear #kenya #magicalkenya #africa #whyilovekenya#babyelephants #cuteanimals
Lemorijo and Kapai, both almost 4 months old, just as happy as elephants in dirt. Even not so little anymore Nadasoit gets pulled into the fun.

Camouflaged darling Nadasoit is getting so big! She just had a big growth spurt. She was only two weeks old when she was rescued from a well and brought to Reteti by helicopter. She turns one this month & we couldn't be happier with the progress she has made in this year with us. It’s your support that has made this happen. Thank you to all of you! And if you’d like to get involved, you can donate via the link in our profile. β€οΈπŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ˜ Photo by @sararacamp.  @tropicairkenya @conservationorg @glassybaby @lifeisgoodco @yachakorganic @tusk_org @sandiegozoo @natgeo @nrt_kenya @kenyawildlifeservice #bekindtoelephants #stoppoaching #elephants #dontletthemdisappear #kenya #magicalkenya #africa #whyilovekenya #babyelephants #cuteanimals
2-year-old Shaba in the middle of the mudbath. Shaba is one of earliest rescues and she is the proxy matriarch for our orphan herd. The youngest, smallest ones latch on to her, and she keeps them close. She teaches everyone how to navigate tricky terrain and how to find juicy bits on the shrubs, and here, how to take a proper bath.

Reteti doesn’t only care for elephants. We also care for a host of other orphaned animals, including reticulated #giraffe, like Shorty. Shorty the giraffe loves to give kisses which wildlife keeper Banki is receiving here. Shorty, or "Fupi" in Swahili, will go back to the wild once strong enough to survive on his own. Reticulated giraffe, which scientists have recently determined to be one of four distinct species of giraffe, number about 8,000 individuals — as a separate species, it makes them some of the most endangered large mammals in the world.

Pokot was found in Turkana on Northern Rangelands Trust (@nrt_kenya)’s Pello Conservancy, orphaned as a result of the drought. After days of intensive care, exciting signs of playfulness started to emerge, showing that Pockot was making a recovery and getting his spirit back. Today, a healthy, hearty Pokot is a keeper favorite, full of games and heaps of fun. This photo is from a little bit ago but it was too good not to share. Since it was taken, he’s gotten so big, you might have a hard time recognizing him. (He was in the bath video we posted just a couple of days ago).
