Video by @amivitale | Shaba, the oldest rescue at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) is the matriarch of the small herd of orphans, even though she is an orphan herself. She leads her small band of baby elephants into the bush around the sanctuary, stripping leaves, tasting bark, pushing down small trees, and, best of all, taking luxurious mud baths. The 3-year-old measures 1.9m tall (nearly 6.2ft) and will eventually grow to be as tall as 2.6m (8.5ft.) Reteti is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. The sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. Reteti operates in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.
