Side by side, step by step, we help each orphaned elephant that we rescue work their way towards a life back in the wild.
We currently have 83 orphaned elephants in our care. Some of them are on the cusp of transitioning to an independent life, while the younger rescues may remain dependent on us for years to come. Whatever stage they’re at, we are there to support them every step of the way — and you can too! To foster an orphaned elephant, click the link in our bio or visit:

We have to monitor and track the elephants 24 hours a day. Sometimes the elephants aren’t easy to find. Our trackers work tirelessly to follow them and make sure they are safe. They are trained to look for clues - some more obvious than others. It’s worth all the effort expended knowing the elephants are safe. Try to spot the elephants in picture two.

In loving memory of the most gentle & caring Matriarch of all Matriarchs, none other than the amazing Dame Daphne Marjorie Sheldrick, DBE she was a Kenyan-British author, conservationist & expert in the raising & reintegrating of orphaned elephants into the wild.

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.

Regrann from @sheldrickwildlifetrust - Please send Enkikwe your well wishes — this brave bull recently survived a terrifying lion attack, but he’s receiving the best of care and on the mend. For the past few months, Enkikwe has been spending more time away from the Keepers and instead joining Laragai’s semi-independent group on their daily walkabouts. All of this is a natural part of the reintegration process, and by all accounts, he has been thriving. So, the Keepers were dismayed to see wild-living orphans Makena, Tumaren, and Rapsu escorting a wounded Enkikwe back to the stockades earlier this month. The four-year-old had been attacked, likely by multiple lions, and we suspect that it was the older elephants’ intervention that saved his life. Our veterinarian was immediately flown in to treat him and while he is still in recovery, his wounds are healing and he seems to be doing better each day. The other elephants have been a fount of comfort and support, checking in on him often and clearly eager to have their friend back in their herd.

Fencing is being installed to protect the elephants against poaching at the Madikwe expansion project at Sebele farm. It’s a long and expensive process but something that has to be done in order to conserve the animals in the area.

You have to be pretty close to an elephant to be able to see that they actually have very hairy trunks and their tusks have small fissures or cracks along the length of them.

Tracking elephants is a job that requires extensive training and above all else, dedication and devotion to these majestic creatures. Ntsindiso and Mazimasi graduated South African College for Tourism Tracker Academy last year. Now they are working as interns @samara_karoo and learning how to be elephant monitors with ERP. Without dedicated trackers like these two young men, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

"Jumbo" --- the largest bull orphaned elephant at @whelephantsanctuary is an enormous, but such a placid and lovely creature. ---
These elephants have come as orphans to this sanctuary just outside #VictoriaFalls, they are not bred in captivity, they are not ridden, they are treated humanely, and trained through only positive reinforcement.
Usually they are found as young elephants in the bush after a matriarch or member of their herd has succumbed to poaching, and so cannot be reintroduced immediately into the wild until they are part of a new herd. @wildhorizonsvicfalls and @victoriafallswildlifetrust work together to look after these animals, engage the local and international community and educate the world about elephant conservation and the critical need to stop poaching in Africa.

#SavetheElephantDay 'THE WICKED PRIZE' 17 000 crystals & paint on board. 35.8 x 59.8 inches. 2015 ⏩ for details.
.
This painting was informed by events in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe where cyanide poisoning of waterholes kill many elephants and some officials have been found to be complicit. It includes the following quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet:
.
“In the corrupted currents of this world,
Offence’s gilded hand may shove by justice,
And oft ‘tis seen the wicked prize itself
Buys out the law.” Claudius (Hamlet, Act lll Scene lll).
.
The painting forms part of the collection entitled 'TRUE VALUE'. The elephant's head is created from crystals, the largest being on the tusks. These fade out to a semi-abstract body, of no consequence to poachers. At first glance the bullet's trajectory towards the head of the elephant is definitive; on closer observation, the partially silver bullet is a metaphor for an effective solution to the poaching problem, but it is stopped in mid-air by a question mark. In the outline of a baobab tree - the tree of life and symbol of positivity - the quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet is suggestive of corruption and collusion on a grand scale. Similarly, the hands represent the eternal struggle between good and evil. .

This is Nolitha. She is around the same age as Nobomi whom we introduced you to yesterday. She was also successfully relocated to @samara_karoo. Nolitha means ‘beam of light’ in Xhosa. That is exactly what she is. Just as pretty as Nobomi and a curious girl. She loves exploring her environment and like Nobomi, she is extremely close to her Mom and older sister. These close bonds with her family will continue throughout her life.

Meet Nobomi, one of the elephants we relocated to Samara Game Reserve last year.She is the youngest daughter of Nombeka, the matriarch @samarakaroo and the baby of the family. Our relocation of this elephant family has been so successful. We are delighted that we were able to rescue them from certain death and that they are thriving in their new home. Nobomi is a feisty young lady which is how she got her name, which means ‘life’ in Xhosa. Her journey to her new home wasn’t an easy one, but she proved that she is a survivor. She is never far from her Mom, Nombeko or her older sister Nocwaka, both of whom look after her and keep her safe. If you’re interested in funding relocations such as these, visit our website on link in our bio.

We are saddened by the loss of Kenyan elephant conservationist Daphne Sheldrick, aged 83. Selfless and dedicated, she spent six decades caring for more than 230 elephants - many of which had lost their mothers to poachers or drought - successfully rearing them. The Finch family remembers her for this noble cause she so heartedly pursued.

Dame Daphne is fondly described as having "lived alongside elephants and learned to read their hearts." Her charity, @dswt is world-renowned for its care of orphaned elephants.

The world has lost a great conservation heroine, but her legacy lives on in every little step towards conserving elephants at DSWT and the world over.

To make a donation to commemorate, and celebrate, Daphne’s life and help The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust continue to protect the wild lives Daphne loved so much, please visit: sheldrickwildlifetrust.org

You must realize that we are not the only beings on the planet with feelings, minds and personalities. The difference between a poacher and a trophy hunter is one gets paid a small amount of money to kill an elephant and the other pays and exorbitant amount of money to kill and says it’s in the name of conservation. Bottom line is the greed is what is killing these animals. No endangered species should be hunted. Having compassion is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. #worthmorealive #humanity #savetheelephants #elephants #photographer #mywork #conservation #truth #bekindtoelephants #loveanimals #africa #wildlife #freedom #wildlifephotography #stoppoaching #stopkilling #bantrophyhunting #bebetter #awareness #awarenessleadstochange #changeforthebetter #whpwildthing #photographed #amboseli #kenya #compassionforall #beavoiceforthevoiceless #youngmother #elephant #ivorybelongstoelephants

Conserving elephants and rhinos through poverty alleviation
Meet Noluvo.Noluvo’s name means Opinion in Xhosa. She was one of the first elephants @samara_karoo to stand out from the rest. She can be a bit temperament and does not like white vehicles getting too close to her or her family group. She will stand up to the white vehicles and try to intimidate them.
Noluvo is the first daughter of Nomvula. She is about 10-12 years old with a shoulder height of 2.1 m. Her ears are fairly smooth with one relatively large C-cut in the top part of her right ear. Read more about ERP’s work at Samara Private Game Reserve on link in bio. Photo ©️@chicabee_ida

RIP to this amazing woman, Dame Daphne Sheldrick - a true hero for elephants, wildlife and #conservation and an inspiration to humankind. Over 40 years ago, she founded the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @dswt - a haven for orphaned #elephants, #rhinos and other #wildlife. Her legacy will live on through her daughter and the dedicated team she leaves behind. And she will forever be a voice for the elephants and for the voiceless, raising awareness of the importance of the natural world, the sad plight of elephants and all wildlife and their fight for survival. She was “one of a kind, a national treasure and a conservation icon.”

Why is it important to conserve forest elephants? Apart from their magnificence, they play a vital ecological role without which the forests of the Congo basin and West Africa would not be able to function. They are so inextricably linked that the forest sustains forest elephants and the forest elephants in turn sustain the forest. Visit our website or watch this space to find out more about their ecological importance.

Yesterday, the world lost a true conservation hero. Dr. Daphne Sheldrick passed away at the age of 83, leaving behind an incredible legacy of compassion and activism for the protection of Africa's wildlife. I was lucky enough to visit the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi about five years ago, where hundreds of orphaned baby elephants have been rescued and rehabilitated. Thank you, Daphne Sheldrick, for serving and protecting those without a voice.

RIP Dame Daphne Sheldrick. What an incredible life and legacy! @dswt carries on without their figurehead - please consider supporting their very special work with orphaned elephants if you can. Oh, and read Daphne’s book ‘An African Love Story’ - it’s truly wonderful and tells the story of how she became the first person to successfully hand-rear a tiny elephant calf 💕

Dame Daphne Sheldrick, founder of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @dswt - a haven for orphaned #elephants, #rhinos and other #wildlife founded over 40 years ago - has sadly passed away.

Her legacy is immeasurable and her passing will reverberate far and wide because the difference she has made for #conservation in Kenya is unparalleled. She will be sorely missed, but never forgotten, and this is what Daphne drew the most comfort from in her final weeks; knowing that her memory and work would continue with the tiny steps of baby elephants for generations to come and that the work that she pioneered has been able to achieve so much for wildlife and wild places throughout Kenya. She died knowing that she will continue to make a difference each and every day upon a land that she held so dear to her heart through the work of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, thanks to a dedicated team she leaves behind. What a gift she leaves us all with, as she really is a shining example of the finest of humanity.”

She will be sorely missed, but never forgotten, and this is what Daphne drew the most comfort from in her final weeks; knowing that her memory and work would continue with the tiny steps of baby elephants for generations to come and that the work that she pioneered has been able to achieve so much for wildlife and wild places throughout Kenya. She died knowing that she will continue to make a difference each and every day upon a land that she held so dear to her heart through the work of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, thanks to a dedicated team she leaves behind. What a gift she leaves us all with, as she really is a shining example of the finest of humanity.”

Conserving elephants and rhinos through the alleviation of poverty.

In our efforts to find suitable homes for at-risk elephant populations across the subcontinent, it is often necessary to move them across borders. When the elephants decide to do this on their own accord, they simply cross a river or walk over a mountain range from one country to the next. That is why the establishment of cross-border conservation areas or TFCA's is critical to the long-term conservation of these animals.

When we move them by road, there is a significant amount of paperwork required, both in the country of origin and in the recipient country. There are veterinary permits, cross-border clearances and so much more that need to be done. ERP as an organisation, and through our relationships with strategic partners has become the leader in managing this cumbersome process. Photo _ @taunb
