Orp.Haned Baby Elephants Line Up To Hug The Woman Who Saved Their Lives

It’s estimated that over [20,000] elephants are [poa.ched] each year for their ivory leaving many or.phans behind.
Fortunately, there are some people helping to fight for the lives of these precious babies…
One such person is Dr. Daphne Sheldrick of the The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. This trust exists to protect Africa’s wildlife and to preserve habitats for the future of all wild species. They’re saving elephants and the elephants appreciate it!


And they have created an orp.han.age to care for the orp.haned elephant calves. There, the calves are protected and cared for, despite their [har.sh] beginnings and [hea.rtbre.aking] cause of their being there.


For over 50 years, Dr. Sheldrick has been raising baby elephants that have lo.st their mothers and families in Nairobi. She works tir.elessly to replace the physical and emotional nourishing the babies would have received from their elephant families.

The elephants line up for their big dose of love and attention from her as they are cared for around the clock.

Dr. Sheldrick said she also learned a lot from the elephants. The older elephants at the orp.hanage also play a huge role in helping the newcomers over the [st.ress and sh.ock] of lo.sing their loved ones. They comfort and help the babies past the few sc.ary days so they have the best chance of su.rv.ival.


She said: Elephants have taught me how to put the ba.d things behind turn the page and get on with living, Understanding the [tr.aumas] that elephants have to put up with and how they cope with it has made me a stronger person. 💪💪💪

These are precious animals that need to be helped and protected!!
