The herd on the move. Every day at Reteti all 9 of the orphaned elephants we care for head out into the wild at 6 a.m. and they don't return until 6 p.m. This time in nature helps them become accustomed to what being in the wild means and they can also potentially meet the other animals who live there. This helps prepare the elephants for a better transition when they are ready to return to their natural habitat.

TB to 2013 and one of the first photos I took of a black rhino as a freshly qualified ranger on Phinda Private Game Reserve.

Slight Curveball: The Rock β€˜n’ Roll Oasis Montreal Marathon was canceled due to β€œunseasonably warm weather conditions.” πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ Presumably, we were sent an email update, but since all the emails were in French we missed the news...looks like my French is not very good after all. πŸ‡«πŸ‡·
.
The Good News: We searched for the closest race in both time and distance, and were able to secure two spots in the Northern Ohio Marathon next weekend (October 1). πŸƒπŸ» πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ So, it looks like our training will not go to waste, we get to continue carb/poutine loading, and while we have already surpassed our fundraising goal 🐘 (THANK YOU!!!), we have one more week to accept donations!
.
Also, now we get two vacations - one in Montreal, and one in Mentor, Ohio...home of Ohio’s longest natural beach! πŸŽ‰

・・・Happy World Rhino Day 2
Rhino horns are not made of bone, but of keratin, the same material found in your hair and fingernails.
A rhino’s horn is not attached to its skull. It is actually a compacted mass of hairs that continues to grow throughout the animal’s lifetime, just like our own hair and nails. The longest horn on record belonged to a white rhino and measured just under 60 inches (five feet). By comparison, a woman from Las Vegas, Nevada is believed to have the world’s longest fingernails – about 10 feet worth on each hand – while a woman from China apparently holds the record for the world’s longest hair – over 18 feet in length! Regrettably, neither human hair nor fingernails are believed to possess the healing properties that some people believe are found in rhino horn. If people believed they did, they could chew their own nails and cut their own hair in order to feel well, and halt the needless slaughter of rhinos.

There’s just something really special about seeing a herd of wild elephants being elephants.

My heart melts whenever I see children meeting wild animals for the first time - @wildlifedirect is taking a bus load of children from Nairobis #Mukuru #Slum to #NairobiPark to meet rhinos - it's part of our education program #WatotoPorini and today they are celebrating #WorldRhinoDay #DontLetThemDisappear

Happy World Rhino Day, part 2! Reteti resident black #rhino Loojipu was only one day old when he was abandoned. Now 6 months old, expert wildlife keeper Mary and her colleagues will feed and care for him until he is old enough to be released back into the wild.

Bawa puts his trunk in Sosian's mouth. It's a gesture that is reassuring and comforting, like a hug or a handshake for humans.

Elephants spend almost a whole day feeding in the swamp especially during the dry season like now. Amboseli National Park is a home for more than 1600 elephants. #dontletthemdisappear #protectourheritage

@Regranned from @amivitale - Photo by @amivitale. Wildlife keeper Mary leads young elephants Shaba, Bawa and Pokot on their daily wilderness walk in the area around Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya. Shaba has become the leader of the little herd of rescued elephants being cared for at Reteti. They were all orphaned by environmental causes or poaching, but these wilderness walks help the elephants learn natural behaviors so they can eventually be released into the wild. After his rescue, when Bawa was finally strong enough to start going out on walks, Shaba would never leave Bawa and Bawa would never leave Shaba.
