Keeper Leleruk with the baby, Ewaso. Ewaso was saved from a flooded Ewaso Ng'iro River by brave staff and guests at nearby @elephantbedroomcamp. She is a lovely little character with charisma and spirit. The other day, when it began to rain, so she had to be brought inside. She did not like that at all, so she went around trumpeting at everyone. Then, when the rain stopped, she went barreling outside with her keeper.

Photo by @amivitale. The last few days have been a worrying time for Africa's elephants. The indication from U.S. on lifting a ban on importing hunted elephant trophies policy decisions has underscored just how vulnerable elephant populations are and how much needs to be done to protect them. We are committed, more than ever, in providing homes for orphaned elephants and creating a society that appreciates and treasures all elephants.

If you are able to join us in creating and sustaining protective, nurturing and empowering environments for both the wildlife and the people whose economic livelihoods depend on it, please make a donation to Reteti today. Link in profile.
In this photo, Keeper Lemarash watches over his ward, Warges. Warges was rescued from right here, nearby Reteti. His mother had bullet wounds in her foot and died of septicimia as a result. He is named after the largest peak in the Matthews Range, and he himself is the largest elephant in the herd and despite all he's been through, he's a big softy - a happy, friendly, easy going guy who loves to eat.

I had the pleasure of spending time with Gumatho and her family at their home in Korr, Kenya.
We are proud to support Gumatho as well as other deserving student’s from northern Kenya with the ability to achieve a secondary school education. Education = Opportunity, Education = Power

Turkana region in Northern Kenya can only be reached by 4x4 or truck. Hitchhiking through this deserted landscape introduces you to a new kind of nomadic living. The Samburu people have found innovative ways to survive in this unaccessible desert. After ten hours of driving from the last settlement "Maralal" turquiose Lake Turkana suddenly appears as a true fata morgana.

@Regranned from @natgeo - Photo by @amivitale. Bawa puts his trunk in Sosian's mouth. It's a gesture that is reassuring and comforting, like a hug or a handshake for humans. Both elephants are residents of the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first community owned elephant orphanage in Africa.
Follow @amivitale and @r.e.s.c.u.e to support and learn more about their important initiatives working to return orphan elephant calves into the wild.

from @amivitale - Photo by @amivitale. Mike Learka receives affection from Nadasoit, an eight month old elephant who was orphaned due to the drought. Mike, a Samburu warrior, is one of the incredible keepers at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of Africa. While providing a home and nuturing young, orphaned elephant calves so they can one day return to the wild, the sanctuary is also leading a transformation in the way humans relate to wild animals.

I am currently running a limited edition, fine art flash print sale to support the important work happening at @r.e.s.c.u.e and 100% of the proceeds from this sale will go to the sanctuary.

Photo by @amivitale. Today, was a sad day for elephants. In times like these, it is more important than ever to do all that we can to protect these incredible, gentle beings. Therefore, I am announcing the launch of a limited edition, fine art flash print sale to support the important work of the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) on their one year anniversary. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to supporting the elephants and the Samburu community who are helping to foster a mutually supportive relationship between wildlife and people. For $225 plus shipping, you will receive a stunning 12 x 14 archival print of Mpala and the herd of elephants bathing and you can learn more about the sanctuary in my recent National Geographic magazine story, "Warriors Protecting Elephants." This sale only lasts until Dec. 10, 2017.

Reteti is the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of Africa and provides a home to orphaned elephants as a result of poaching, human wildlife conflict and drought related issues. All of these elephants will one day be returned to the wild to live the life they were meant to lead. What’s happening at Reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way humans relate to wild animals. This oasis where orphans grow up, learning to be wild so that one day they can rejoin their herds, is as much about the people as it is about elephants.

The image will be printed by the fine art studio of Paper & Ink on 12x14 inches (30.5x36 cm) and with Epson's Ultrachome HDX archival pigment ink on Canson's PrintMaKing Rag archival paper which is designed to meet museum longevity requirements. Follow the link in my profile to the shop page on my website to order and please add shipping ($25 domestic, $35 international). #bekindtoelephants #DontLetThemDisappear @nrt_kenya @tusk_org @conservationorg @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @thephotosociety @natgeo #elephants #saveelephants #stoppoaching #kenya#northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica#photojournalism #amivitale @nikonusa #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassa
