The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust


Recommended Posts

I am new here :) and so glad that I found this forum. I love nature and animals and want to dedicate my life to conserving them/creating awareness. So this is my first post. This is a link to a video clip that I made at the David Sheldrick's Wildlife Trust, I uploaded the video onto youtube. I looove elephants, and I think that all that can be done should be done to save our elephants. Hope you enjoy the video!

@@wildgiraffe, I love visiting the ellies at Sheldrick and admire their hard work and care for the foster elephants they tend to 24/7.


Thanks for sharing your video,

and Welcome!

Has anyone watched the Yao Ming documentary on saving elephants -- "Saving Africa's Giants"? He is trying to make a difference in China regarding the import and buying of ivory. The photo of 7'6" Yao with the tiny new ellies at the Sheldrick compound are beyond beautiful.

Welcome wildgiraffe!


The Sheldrick Foundation does such fantastic work -- I love that place! The eles look like they're rolling around in milk chocolate at the noon mudbath.


Four Christmases ago I sponsored eles for my niece & nephew and it has now become a tradition.


They love getting their regular updates and my niece is now saving up to join me on a pilgramage to Kenya to see if we can find her ele. ;)


I can't wait to go back!

THAT :) is sooo awesome KathBC would be so glad to have you around! I try to showcase the importance of wildlife as much as I can... because I believe that without them, we're nothing, as human beings.
