Photo by @amivitale. An orphaned elephant calf comforts a new arrival at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), Africa's first community owned and operated elephant sanctuary. The calves at @r.e.s.c.u.e, ranging from a few weeks to two years old, were orphaned due to poaching, human-wildlife conflict or drought related conditions. They have formed their own herd at the sanctuary, caring for one another, and providing comfort and help to those who need it.  Follow @amivitale and @r.e.s.c.u.e  for more stories about communities protecting wildlife.

Video by @amivitale | A little slurpy, a little slobbery, but very satisfying. Lemorijo gets his afternoon bottle from Matiba. The rapidly growing orphaned baby elephants are fed two liter bottles of special formula every three hours, 24-hours per day. That means Lemorijo, in the more than 8 months he's been at Reteti, has drunk more than 2000 bottles of milk.
Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, in northern Kenya 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.

Shaba, the proxy matriarch, teaches all the babies to browse in the wild. After her mother was killed by poachers, Shaba was brought to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in 2016.
Initially wary of the keepers, Shaba is now an instrumental part of the sanctuary, helping to keep order, teaching the young ones how to navigate steep paths and greeting new orphans with a heartfelt and emotional hello.
Shaba guides her fellow elephants as they adapt to life at the sanctuary in addition to helping teach the keepers how to better care for their charges.

Repost from @amivitale using @RepostRegramApp - Video by @amivitale. Little Kapai out on the daily nature walk with all of the orphans from Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e). He was rescued by the Reteti team when he was only about a week old and is doing wonderfully. Having arrived so young, he had a lot to learn about being an elephant, but he had the rest of the Reteti herd and his keepers to show him how to browse, graze and navigate. Someday soon, he'll be big, strong bull, ready to return to the wild.

On Friday, we shared a picture of Naomi feeding Warges, a three-year old male elephant, noting that he's gotten huge. This is Warges one year ago almost exactly with @r.e.s.c.u.e keeper Lemarash. Such a crazy difference (and exactly what we want to see!) (In the slide show, you can see Friday's picture of Warges too.) Photos by @amivitale & @katie.rowe

Photo by David Chancellor @chancellordavid | Camouflage warrior training, northern Kenya - from 'with butterflies and warriors' - ranger recruits are selected from all tribes across northern Kenya thus allowing ranger teams to protect wildlife and people without fear of tribal conflict. The recruits are portrayed at the end of a days camouflage and ambush training. They are carrying sticks that represent the actual weapons that they will be issued with once their training is complete and they have attained Kenya Police Reservist status, then can then operate alongside other rangers protecting wildlife and people here in northern Kenya.
It is obvious that without the support and agreement of those who live alongside wildlife to safeguard a wide range of species, not just the iconic ones, we have no hope of preserving this region, let alone the rest of the planet.

Video by @amivitale. Elephants' trunks are a magnificent, multipurpose tool. Their trunks are comprised of over 44,000 muscles and used for eating, drinking, as snorkels and for reassuring other elephants. These sentient giants are nature’s greatest engineers. By eating the trees and brush, they keep the land open and grassy. Without them, other wildlife, people and livestock all suffer.

Regrann from @r.e.s.c.u.e - Reteti Keeper Naomi reaches up, up, up to give Warges his bottle. This baby has gotten big! Warges mother had a bit of a rough start. His mother died after contracting septicemia (blood poisoning) as a result of a bullet wounds in her foot. He had tried to join another herd, but they didd not accept him and we took him in. Today at 3-years-old, he's the biggest elephant in our little herd and is generally a docile, happy-go-lucky, easy-going guy, acting like a big brother to all of his fellow orphans.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Monica at her school in Maralal, Kenya.
Monica is a first year student at Irene School, an all girls boarding Secondary School in Samburu County.
This impressive, hardworking, and motivated young lady finished #1 position in her grade after Term one.
Her favorite subjects include Biology, Chemistry, Math and English. She likes studying sciences because her dream is to be a doctor and a nun. “I would like to become a nun to help people spiritually and mentally. Moreover, I need to help the needy like the poor, orphaned and the disabled. To provide for Mentorship and basic needs in their lives”.
Monica knows first hand the hardships of life. She is a paternal orphan and one of six children. Because of her humble background, the funds were not available to pay the required Secondary School fees. This is when a generous donor from NYC stepped forward and offered to help. Thanks to this act of kindness, Monica is able to dream of a future that will not only benefit her but also the many she will help during her lifetime.
Education=Opportunity. Education=Hope. Sponsor a Student, Change a Life.
