An amazing image I captured of a wild-born African elephant. So often we forget that animals are pensive, often highly intelligent beings and that many of the same exact thoughts and emotions we experience are not alien to them. They experience joy, pain, and in the case of the elephant: grief. Remember: we are all alike, from the tiniest ant to the largest whale. We are all connected in some way, shape, or form. 🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘 #africa #elephant #dswt #conservation #wildlife #photography #travel #beauty #ecology #biology #nature #outdoors #kenya #wildlifephotography #goodnight #positivevibes (Copyright David Couto)

Three-month-old Nusu already has the bravado of a full-grown bull — as a rather surprised group discovered yesterday when the half-pint-sized baby decided to show them who was boss!

This scene is only a reality through our Orphans' Project. We rescued Nusu's mother, Nasalot, as an orphan when she herself was just three months old. Today, she’s living wild with her firecracker of a son (her first calf) by her side — except, of course, when he’s off chasing other elephants!

Esampu has been outdoing herself in terms of mischief-making. When the mini matriarchs thwarted her attempts to whisk away one of the babies, she gave Tagwa a retaliatory shove as she stormed off. Unfortunately, this created a domino effect which ended with the little one toppling over! After receiving a stern rebuke from Mbegu, Esampu stomped into a thicket, where she expressed her anger about the whole situation by dramatically breaking branches.

Meet Kiko! 🦒 He was orphaned at a week old, but thanks to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @dswt, he has grown into a handsome, curious, all-smiles giraffe.

Little stinker...he’s the boss as long as momma is there to back him up. I love that his momma was rescued by @dswt and now she’s living wild, blessed with this beautiful little boy. And she brings him to visit the orphans at DSWT. ❤️ He’s just too cute. Happy Saturday! 😍❤️🐘#foster #elephants

We are very proud to be sponsoring a local fundraiser this evening in support of Kids Tusk Force and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

Although a small rural event in Wiltshire, it is still our responsibility to continue the fight against the illegal ivory trade and create awareness about the fantastic work that the @dswt do in Kenya.

Per questo fine settimana delle adozioni Pengo Life Project vi propone:
La storia della nostra Amato: SATTAO ----------- Sattao / Anno ritrovamento: dicembre 2016/ Età ritrovamento:3 mesi/ Luogo ritrovamento: Tsavo est/ Centro di permanenza:Nursery/
Sesso:M / Cause ritrovamento: sospetto bracconaggio ----------- La storia di SATTAO Il 18 marzo 2017 il Kenya Wildlife Service venne allertato per un minuscolo magrissimo elefante che si aggirava solo e abbandonato nel parco dello Tsavo est e che era stato ferito alle gambe posteriori da possibili predatori. I keepers del centro del Voi vennero informati, così come l'Unità Mobile Veterinaria del posto e la squadra anti bracconaggio del DSWT. Il team di salvataggio localizzo' il piccolo molto velocemente e fu un miracolo trovarlo ancora in vita causa i moltissimi leoni presenti in quell'area. Probabilmente furono gli sciacalli ad averlo attaccato alla schiena e alle gambe posteriori. Rimane un mistero del perché venne abbandonato, ma essendoci stati un paio di casi di bracconaggio in quella zona, fu evidente la possibilità che una delle vittime fosse sua madre. In queste situazioni capita spesso che il cucciolo rimanga con la sua famiglia, ma perdendo pian piano le forze a causa della mancanza di latte, la famiglia è poi obbligata ad abbandonarlo dato che il piccolo non riesce più per la sua debolezza a stare al passo con gli altri. Questo è quello che probabilmente capito' visto che era incredibilmente magro e disidratato quando venne ritrovato. È terribile immaginare di come possa essere stato spaventato e impaurito nel ritrovarsi tutto solo in un ambiente così ostile. La squadra di salvataggio, date le sue condizioni e la giovane età (circa 3 o 4 mesi) lo catturo' facilmente e lo portò al centro del Voi. Passò la notte con uno dei keepers al suo fianco. Gli venne dato del latte e dei sali per reidratarlo e per dei brevi periodi riuscì a dormire sdraiato sulla soffice paglia. Il giorno seguente venne portato alla Nursery di Nairobi dove pote' ricevere le cure intensive di cui aveva bisogno. Durante il volo verso Nairobi gli venne somministrata una flebo per aiutarlo.

The cutest gin & tonics out there! Our 50ml miniatures are now available via @ginfoundryuk - our exclusive UK selling partner in January. The London Dry minis feature a baby elephant on the label to pay homage to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @dswt and its elephant orphanage in Nairobi, with 15% of profits from our minis supporting DSWT.

Mini bottle, maximum effort!

@Regranned from @dswt - Given the vast size of Kenya and the variety of threats facing its wildlife, our field teams have their work cut out for them. That’s why our DSWT/KWS De-Snaring, Mobile Veterinary, and Aerial Surveillance Units operate side by side to patrol for illegal activity, identify animals in need, and treat wild patients.

It was a truly collaborative effort to save this female elephant. Our field teams first spotted her — and the snare coiled tightly around her trunk — in June 2016, but before we could come to her aid, she disappeared. It wasn’t until two months later that she was sighted again, this time among a herd of 70 elephants, and with the snare still cutting into her flesh. The Sky Vet Unit, with KWS Vet onboard, flew to the scene, darting the patient, removing the braided snare, and treating the wound with antiseptic. She was sent off with a positive prognosis and minus a lot of pain!
