How Elephants tell secrets.. #trunkupwines #bekindtoelephants ・・・ Nusu gives his honorary sister Kama a kiss!  These calves are the next generation of DSWT success. Kama is the daughter of Kinna, who we rescued from a water hole in 1999. Nusu is the son of Nasalot, who came to us after poachers killed her mother in 2000. Now part of the same herd, the former orphans and their babies are enjoying a fully wild life in Tsavo, while our field teams work behind the scenes to ensure their health and safety. • To help us make more success stories like this one possible, donate at: www.thedswt.org/donate • • • Photos © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #kama #kamadswt #nusu #nusudswt #ithumba #ithumbareintegrationunit #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #antipoaching @dswt
Kama & Nusu are the respective calves of wild living orphans Kinna & Nasalot. They live together as part of the same herd & spend their days playing together, all the while protected by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.⠀

RIP to this amazing woman, Dame Daphne Sheldrick - a true hero for elephants, wildlife and #conservation and an inspiration to humankind.  Over 40 years ago, she founded the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @dswt - a haven for orphaned #elephants, #rhinos and other #wildlife.  Her legacy will live on through her daughter and the dedicated team she leaves behind.  And she will forever be a voice for the elephants and for the voiceless, raising awareness of the importance of the natural world, the sad plight of elephants and all wildlife and their fight for survival.  She was “one of a kind, a national treasure and a conservation icon.” .

#repost @green.veganista with @get_repost ・・・ RIP to this amazing woman - a hero, an angel and an inspiration.  Dame Daphne Sheldrick, founder of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @dswt - a haven for orphaned #elephants, #rhinos and other #wildlife founded over 40 years ago - has sadly passed away.  In her daughter, Angela Sheldrick’s words - “She was quite simply ‘one of a kind’. She was a national treasure and a conservation icon.  Her legacy is immeasurable and her passing will reverberate far and wide because the difference she has made for #conservation in Kenya is unparalleled.  She will be sorely missed, but never forgotten, and this is what Daphne drew the most comfort from in her final weeks; knowing that her memory and work would continue with the tiny steps of baby elephants for generations to come and that the work that she pioneered has been able to achieve so much for wildlife and wild places throughout Kenya. She died knowing that she will continue to make a difference each and every day upon a land that she held so dear to her heart through the work of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, thanks to a dedicated team she leaves behind. What a gift she leaves us all with, as she really is a shining example of the finest of humanity.” .

Regrann from @dswt -  When our new Mount Kenya Mobile Veterinary Unit launched earlier this month, it dove headfirst into saving wild lives across the region. In the first week alone, it treated the world’s last male Northern White Rhino, an emaciated buffalo, and an elephant (pictured here) who had been shot by a poisoned arrow. All three patients are doing well and will continue to be monitored! The Mount Kenya Mobile Veterinary Unit, which is funded by the DSWT and operated in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service, follows in the footsteps of our hugely successful Tsavo, Mara, Amboseli, and Meru Units. These teams are based in critical conservation areas and have treated more than 5,000 animals to date (including 2,543 elephants). We’re excited to add this new team to the mix — and are grateful for your donations, which make its lifesaving operations possible. • www.thedswt.org/donate • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #kws @kenyawildlifeservice #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #rhino #elephant #savetheelephants #saynotopoaching #mountkenya #magicalkenya #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #dswtfieldsuccessstories
Jotto was a tiny one-month-old when we rescued him from the bottom of a well, and we’ve watched him grow up a lot over the past year and a half. However, he’s still very much a baby at heart. We were reminded of this one recent night, when Jotto was jolted out of his sleep by the sounds of some marauding buffalo near the Nursery stockades. He was so shocked and scared by these intruders that he tried to climb into his Keeper’s bed! The bed was too high for him to reach, so the Keeper quickly jumped down and soothed the flustered little bull. • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #jotto #jottodswt #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #nairobi #dswtnursery #africa #bekindtoelephants #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #nairobinationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #ivorybelongstoelephants #fosterfriday
Credit to @dswt : #tbt, March 2015: Imagine the Voi team’s delight when Edie, who we rescued in 1999, returned to her old stomping grounds to show off her newborn baby! As Voi Head Keeper Joseph Sauni notes, Edie’s herd had gathered around to protect little Eden and lavish her with love — something they’re still doing today with the (very precocious) calf, who is now three years old. • • • Video © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #eden #edendswt #edie #ediedswt #voi #voireintegrationunit #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #antipoaching #ivorybelongstoelephants #bekindtoelephants BLUETEESHOP.COM
🐘In November 2011, a pint-sized calf marched into a village looking for company. When we rescued him then – only a week old at most, with umbilical cord still attached – we had no idea that he would become one of the most mischievous orphans we’ve ever raised! This #dswttransformationtuesday, swipe through to see the evolution of Kithaka over the past six years. Kithaka was a character from day one. Here he is, two months old and already commandeering a Keeper’s umbrella as his own! • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #kithaka #kithakadswt #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #nairobi #dswtnursery #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #nairobinationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #bekindtoelephants #transformationtuesday #ithumbareintegrationunit #tsavo #tsavoeast
One small step for Inca, one giant leap for elephants! At least, that’s how we see it when we rescue and raise an orphaned elephant who then goes on to live and start a family in the wild. Such is the case with Icholta, who we rescued from a drying water hole in 1999, and her baby Inca, who was born in 2016. • • • Video © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #inca #incadswt #icholta #icholtadswt elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #voi #voireintegrationunit #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #tsavo #tsavonationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive
I am deeply disappointed to hear that the United States is lifting its ban on elephant trophies. Despite being listed as a vulnerable species, hunters that legally kill an elephant in Zimbabwe and Zambia between 2016–2018 will now be able to obtain a permit to import their ‘trophy’ into the US. I strongly believe that no animal should be hunted for ‘sport’ in the name of conservation. Reversing the trophy import ban imposed in 2014, which was aimed at protecting the species, is a backward step for ethical conservation efforts. • If you feel equally disappointed, there are a few meaningful actions that you can take to help.

Our little girl Dupotto has gotten so big and his one step closer to returning to the wild #repost @dswt with @get_repost ・・・ This is how the DSWT Ithumba Reintegration Unit does lunch! At just three years old, Naseku, Dupotto, and Roi, who graduated from the Nursery earlier this year, are still quite attached to their Keepers and milk bottles. Someday, they will be wild-living elephants, just like Tomboi, who is bringing up the rear. Although Tomboi's milk-dependent days are long behind him, the 14-year-old was kind enough to swing by before he joined some wild bulls over by the mud bath. • www.thedswt.org/donate • • • Video © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #naseku #nasekudswt #dupotto #dupottodswt #roi #roidswt #tomboi #tomboidswt #ithumba #ithumbareintegrationunit #tsavo #tsavonationalpark #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #antipoaching
🐘Nice Toes🐘 Well all the female orphans at the Ithumba Reintegration Unit want to know where Nusu got his manicure! 🐘 Nusu was born with those beautiful feet with such nice toes. No manicure was necessary at the local Ithumba Salon. 🐘 Nusu is the wild born orphan from Nasalot who was rescued in 2000 after her mother was killed by poachers. 🐘 Let’s not dwell on the negative but another success story from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. 🐘📸 * * * * * * #elephants #elephant #saynotoivory #thisismytrophy #captureafricatours #dswtfosterparents #dswtat40 #ithumba #ithumbareintegrationunit #nairobi #kenya #thisisafrica #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #iloveafrica #davidsheldrickwildlifetrust #wanderlust #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #canon #canon_official #ivoryfree #passionpassport #africalove #intonature
❤Repost @dswt Siku – the final addition to our “October grandcalves” trio – was born on October 21. Her mum, Sunyei (who we rescued in 2003 after she fell into a hole as a tiny ten-day-old) is a lucky lady; she has lots of eager nannies, from her fellow wild-living orphans, like Loijuk, to older DSWT grandcalves, like Gawa! • • • Video © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #siku #sikudswt #sunyei #sunyeidswt #gawa #gawadswt #ithumba #ithumbareintegrationunit #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #antipoaching #bekindtoelephants . ♡Repost by #runwildrunfreeexplorers

The gentle ones. Regrann from @dswt -  It takes a village to raise an orphaned elephant, but Benjamin has been a part of Nasalot’s journey every step of the way. He knew her at the DSWT Nursery, when she was just a calf. Later, when she, Mulika, Kinna, and Yatta were chosen to be the inaugural graduates to our Ithumba Reintegration Unit, Benjamin was the obvious choice to head the new facility. Now, he and the rest of the team get to see the first-time mum raise her own family in the wild — which, since we rescued Nasalot in 2000, has been our goal for her all along. • • Video © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #nasalot #nasalotdswt #nusu #nusudswt #ithumba #ithumbareintegrationunit #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #antipoaching #ivorybelongstoelephants #elephant #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #conservation
