David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
I have such admiration for Daphne Sheldrick and all who work with her. They do a, wonderful job.

The #DSWT Keepers are frequently the recipients of sneak attacks (of the hugging variety). The orphans love their human-elephant family and they’re not afraid to show it! All the elephants in our care are survivors. They've lost their mothers, but we give them a family and a future. Help them live the life they deserve by fostering one today.

Elephants have each other's backs. They can tell when one of their friends is unhappy or upset, and will stick close by to offer comfort and support. It looks like #Ndotto helped put #Roi back in good spirits here! • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust #DSWT
