Regrann from @ dswt - Esampu can usually be found creating chaos at the DSWT Nursery, but it looks like she's taking a lazier approach to this weekend!

Regrann from @ dswt - This #DSWTFosterFriday, meet Ndotto!
Ndotto is proof that good things come in small packages. When we rescued him, he was mere days old (and born premature to boot). Although he still remains diminutive compared to his peers, Ndotto's outsize personality and exceptionally kind nature shine through in a big way. He's really coming into his own; it's been fun to see him, the smallest orphan we've ever rescued, successfully sparring with Kauro, one of the biggest baby bulls!

To foster Ndotto, visit:

Baby Dik-Dik!!! ✌️❤️😍@respectanimalrights with @get_repost #dikdik ・・・
@dswt
Tiny Toto has stolen all our hearts, but Sala is particularly smitten. Despite the fact that she barely got to know her own mother – Sala was orphaned at just one week old – the kudu’s maternal instincts are strong and she has taken it upon herself to look after Toto. The baby dik-dik loves all the attention and is becoming rather spoiled!
We are currently raising Sala and Toto at our Kaluku Field HQ. When they’re old enough, both orphans will be reintegrated back into nearby wild herds, but between now and then, we foresee lots of pampering in their futures.

Nusu gives his honorary sister Kama a kiss!

These calves are the next generation of DSWT success. Kama is the daughter of Kinna, who we rescued from a water hole in 1999. Nusu is the son of Nasalot, who came to us after poachers killed her mother in 2000. Now part of the same herd, the former orphans and their babies are enjoying a fully wild life in Tsavo, while our field teams work behind the scenes to ensure their health and safety.

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.”

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.

Regrann from @dswt - When our new Mount Kenya Mobile Veterinary Unit launched earlier this month, it dove headfirst into saving wild lives across the region. In the first week alone, it treated the world’s last male Northern White Rhino, an emaciated buffalo, and an elephant (pictured here) who had been shot by a poisoned arrow. All three patients are doing well and will continue to be monitored!
The Mount Kenya Mobile Veterinary Unit, which is funded by the DSWT and operated in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service, follows in the footsteps of our hugely successful Tsavo, Mara, Amboseli, and Meru Units. These teams are based in critical conservation areas and have treated more than 5,000 animals to date (including 2,543 elephants). We’re excited to add this new team to the mix — and are grateful for your donations, which make its lifesaving operations possible.

Jotto was a tiny one-month-old when we rescued him from the bottom of a well, and we’ve watched him grow up a lot over the past year and a half. However, he’s still very much a baby at heart. We were reminded of this one recent night, when Jotto was jolted out of his sleep by the sounds of some marauding buffalo near the Nursery stockades. He was so shocked and scared by these intruders that he tried to climb into his Keeper’s bed! The bed was too high for him to reach, so the Keeper quickly jumped down and soothed the flustered little bull.

As Voi Head Keeper Joseph Sauni notes, Edie’s herd had gathered around to protect little Eden and lavish her with love — something they’re still doing today with the (very precocious) calf, who is now three years old.

🐘In November 2011, a pint-sized calf marched into a village looking for company. When we rescued him then – only a week old at most, with umbilical cord still attached – we had no idea that he would become one of the most mischievous orphans we’ve ever raised! This #DSWTTransformationTuesday, swipe through to see the evolution of Kithaka over the past six years.
Kithaka was a character from day one. Here he is, two months old and already commandeering a Keeper’s umbrella as his own!

One small step for Inca, one giant leap for elephants!
At least, that’s how we see it when we rescue and raise an orphaned elephant who then goes on to live and start a family in the wild. Such is the case with Icholta, who we rescued from a drying water hole in 1999, and her baby Inca, who was born in 2016.

I am deeply disappointed to hear that the United States is lifting its ban on elephant trophies. Despite being listed as a vulnerable species, hunters that legally kill an elephant in Zimbabwe and Zambia between 2016–2018 will now be able to obtain a permit to import their ‘trophy’ into the US. I strongly believe that no animal should be hunted for ‘sport’ in the name of conservation. Reversing the trophy import ban imposed in 2014, which was aimed at protecting the species, is a backward step for ethical conservation efforts. • If you feel equally disappointed, there are a few meaningful actions that you can take to help.

Our little girl Dupotto has gotten so big and his one step closer to returning to the wild #Repost @dswt with @get_repost

This is how the DSWT Ithumba Reintegration Unit does lunch!
At just three years old, Naseku, Dupotto, and Roi, who graduated from the Nursery earlier this year, are still quite attached to their Keepers and milk bottles. Someday, they will be wild-living elephants, just like Tomboi, who is bringing up the rear. Although Tomboi's milk-dependent days are long behind him, the 14-year-old was kind enough to swing by before he joined some wild bulls over by the mud bath.

Well all the female orphans at the Ithumba Reintegration Unit want to know where Nusu got his manicure!
🐘
Nusu was born with those beautiful feet with such nice toes. No manicure was necessary at the local Ithumba Salon.
🐘
Nusu is the wild born orphan from Nasalot who was rescued in 2000 after her mother was killed by poachers.

Let’s not dwell on the negative but another success story from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

Siku – the final addition to our “October grandcalves” trio – was born on October 21. Her mum, Sunyei (who we rescued in 2003 after she fell into a hole as a tiny ten-day-old) is a lucky lady; she has lots of eager nannies, from her fellow wild-living orphans, like Loijuk, to older DSWT grandcalves, like Gawa!

The gentle ones.
Regrann from @dswt -
It takes a village to raise an orphaned elephant, but Benjamin has been a part of Nasalot’s journey every step of the way. He knew her at the DSWT Nursery, when she was just a calf. Later, when she, Mulika, Kinna, and Yatta were chosen to be the inaugural graduates to our Ithumba Reintegration Unit, Benjamin was the obvious choice to head the new facility. Now, he and the rest of the team get to see the first-time mum raise her own family in the wild — which, since we rescued Nasalot in 2000, has been our goal for her all along.

Hey this orphan elephant is sucking down some brand new Valentines formula.
📸
Well not really but it was developed over 28 years ago.
🐘
This magic milk formula is made up of emulsified fat, with added Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C and other special ingredients. This special milk is designed for the very young and fragile orphans in their first few months.

Sweet Sana Sana is always looking out for her friends. Her pal Ndiwa, who usually likes to browse further afield, recently woke up with a limp which kept her behind the pack. Sana Sana realized this and hung back so Ndiwa could have a browsing buddy, spending the entire day by her side. She’s only two and a half, but already she’s remarkably perceptive and empathetic!

More evidence of the incredible work done by @dswt, from new, vulnerable babies barely a month old to orphans making headway to independence, thank you for giving the victims of #poaching, #climatechange and #humanconflict a fighting chance. #dswt #dswtat40 #dswtfosterparents #sponsoranelephant #conservation, #education

This is baby #maisha, one of the elephants I sponsor @dswt who is just over a year old having been found in Tsavo, abandoned near a well and very weak due to drought. The amazing work the trust and the keepers do means she has a shot at life and returning to the wild. #sponsoranorphan #dswt #dswtat40 #dswtfosterparents

🇧🇷🇧🇷 Começaremos com boas novas: esta história tem um final feliz.
Quando este leão foi encontrado com uma lança saindo de sua cabeça. Nossa unidade Veterinária Móvel correu para a cena. Milagrosamente, a arma de 2 metros não acertou o olho e não causou perda de visão duradoura. Depois de remover a lança e sutura da ferida, o veterinário enviou o rei da selva de volta a seu caminho com um bom prognóstico.
Infelizmente essa é a dura realidade do conflito homem-vida selvagem, que, em face de habitats encolhidos, aumento da caça furtiva de carne de caça e fontes de alimentos esgotadas, está em ascensão. Este leão foi, finalmente, um dos sortudos, e nossas unidades veterinárias móveis estão prontas para ajudar outros animais que se encontram em situação semelhante. 🇧🇷🇧🇷

🔄 Repost 🔄 from @dswt - We’ll start with the good news: This story has a happy ending.
When this lion was spotted with a spear sticking out of his head, our DSWT/KWS Mara Mobile Veterinary Unit rushed to the scene. Miraculously, the 6.5-foot (2-meter) weapon had missed his eye and didn’t cause any lasting loss of vision. After removing the spear and stitching up the wound, the KWS veterinarian sent the king of the jungle on his way with a good prognosis.
Unfortunately, this is the harsh reality of human-wildlife conflict — which, in the face of shrinking habitats, increased bushmeat poaching, and depleted food sources, is on the rise. This lion was ultimately one of the lucky ones, and our DSWT/KWS Mobile Veterinary Units are at the ready to help any other animals who find themselves in a similar situation.

This #DSWTFosterFriday, meet Ndotto!
Ndotto is proof that good things come in small packages. When we rescued him, he was mere days old (and born premature to boot). Although he still remains diminutive compared to his peers, Ndotto's outsize personality and exceptionally kind nature shine through in a big way. He's really coming into his own; it's been fun to see him, the smallest orphan we've ever rescued, successfully sparring with Kauro, one of the biggest baby bulls!

Take 72: Walk of Success 🐘 We never get tired of these walks because they mean SUCCESS!
These orphans really do not seem to be in that much of a hurry to get milk. In fact they are enjoying their walk and almost taking their time. Maybe they just do not want to go to bed!

The @dswt anti-poaching unit 🙌🏾🐾
• • •
*Max, Naiko, and Tanja are four-paw members of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust anti-poaching operations. Swipe through to peek into the DSWT Canine Unit’s day:

*Photo 1: Each of the Belgian Malinois is assigned to a specialized handler. As you can see, they’re quite a team on and off the field!

*Photo 2: Not only are the professionally trained tracker dogs able to detect illegal wildlife products (ivory, rhino horn, bush meat, etc.), but they can also sniff out ammunition and follow poachers’ tracks.

*Photo 3: The safety of the dogs and their handlers is paramount. While on patrol, the dogs have been trained to indicate when they are close to suspects, so armed rangers (who accompany them on every operation) can step in and take over.

*Photo 4: They also take smaller safety precautions! Booties protect the dogs’ paws from sharp thorns.

*Photo 5: If they’re not working, Max, Naiko, and Tanja are playing. Besides the obvious fun it affords, this strengthens the bonds between the dogs and their handlers.

*Photo 6: Rest time is important too! The dogs’ custom-made kennels provide a cool and comfortable oasis in Tsavo.

🐘The E l e p h a n t is a symbol of strength, power, stability and wisdom.
Elephant statues are popular worldwide. It is common superstition that an elephant carving or picture should always face the door if you want to bring good luck into the house.
It also protects the home when facing the entrance making sure only good fortune passes through.
L O V E E L E P H A N T S ❤️ PROTECT THEM TOO 🙏🏻

The arrival of a four-year-old (which is much older than our average elephant rescue) generated a lot of interest among the orphans, as this trunk inspection hints at! Although he is a burly bull, Namalok is also quite shy. It took him a long time to settle in and trust the Keepers – so long, in fact, that we suspect he had a bad experience with humans prior to his rescue – but luckily, he had no such trouble making elephant friends. He immediately hit it off with fellow Nursery seniors Sapalan (who is another September rescue) and Kauro, spending lots of time browsing further afield with them and playing pushing games. Yesterday, he and his newfound best friends graduated to our Ithuba Reintegration Unit, where we know that they will support each other as they work towards an eventual return to the wild.

This #DSWTFosterFriday, help Namalok celebrate his major milestone by fostering him. Click the link in our bio or visit:

Although they zoom home en masse (with a warthog or two in their wake!), each of the orphans in our care has a different bedtime ritual. Some, like Murit, start snoring practically the moment they finish their milk bottle. Others, like Esampu, sneak around and try to steal as many greens as possible. Musiara, Sattao, and the other babies bunk up with their Keepers, while big boys like Ndotto and Lasayen prefer to have their stockades to themselves. Luggard has even been known to put himself to bed, returning home ahead of the rest of the Nursery herd to have an early night!

Given the vast size of Kenya and the variety of threats facing its wildlife, our field teams have their work cut out for them. That’s why our DSWT/KWS De-Snaring, Mobile Veterinary, and Aerial Surveillance Units work hand-in-hand to patrol for illegal activity, identify animals in need, and treat wild patients.

It was a truly collaborative effort to save this female elephant. Our field teams first spotted in June 2016 with a snare wrapped tightly around her trunk but before we could come to her aid, she disappeared. It wasn’t until two months later that she was sighted again, this time among a herd of 70 elephants, and with the snare still cutting into her flesh. The Sky Vet Unit flew to the scene, darting the patient, removing the braided snare, and treating the wound with antiseptic. She was sent off plus a positive prognosis and minus a lot of pain!

Every year around my birthday I renew my adoption of Mwashoti with the @dswt 🐘❤️ It is the gift that keeps on giving. Please check out his triumphant story below, and consider adopting an orphaned elephant this year! I plan to visit one of the orphanage sites some day. #elephants #birthday #January #capricorn #loveislove #Africa #wildlife

Mwashoti’s current status is pure bliss! This brave little bull has come so far since he nearly lost his foot to a snare in 2015. Today, he’s taking strides towards a life in the wild at our Umani Springs Reintegration Unit — and he couldn’t be part of a more supportive family to help him along the way. Murera, who suffered a similarly traumatic leg injury at a young age, has appointed herself his stand-in mother. The rest of the herd is very sympathetic about his condition; they’ll either slow down so he doesn’t tire or pick routes that he can easily traverse. He’s even making wild friends; during a recent jaunt in the Kibwezi Forest, he encountered some tiny babies who were very eager to play with him!

Every day is a new adventure for the trio: Shortly after their arrival, they were shocked and a little scared when they witnessed a large wild bull trumpeting. This isn’t something they had experienced in recent memory, and it sent them running off to the Keepers for comfort!

Repost from @dswt using @RepostRegramApp - It takes a long time for elephants to learn how to use their trunks. The DSWT orphans who have really gotten the hang of it like to show off their skills by holding their own milk bottles without the assistance of a Keeper!

Elephants are milk-dependent for the first three years of their lives. With youngsters at our Nursery and three Reintegration Units, that translates to a lot of milk! Help us supply this crucial nutrient by donating a tin at:

Rapa, Pare, and Maramoja, who graduated from the Nursery just three days ago, are fitting right in at our Ithumba Reintegration Unit! Although it may be a new location for them, they still get to indulge in their favorite activities (like mud bathing, which is where they’re heading in this video) as they learn the ropes of a wild life.

This move marks a major milestone for Rapa, Pare, and Maramoja. At Ithumba, their older peers will support and guide them as they gradually lessen their dependence on our Keepers. You can learn more about the process here:

Tiny Toto has stolen all our hearts, but Sala is particularly smitten. Despite the fact that she barely got to know her own mother – Sala was orphaned at just one week old – the kudu’s maternal instincts are strong and she has taken it upon herself to look after Toto. The baby dik-dik loves all the attention and is becoming rather spoiled!
We are currently raising Sala and Toto at our Kaluku Field HQ. When they’re old enough, both orphans will be reintegrated back into nearby wild herds, but between now and then, we foresee lots of pampering in their futures.

As we get ready to ring in 2018, we’d also like to look back on everything that happened over the past year and thank you — our followers, our benefactors, our cheerleaders — for the part you played in it. Your support helps make our work possible!
In 2017, we welcomed newcomers like Musiara and Mundusi into our Nursery herd, and we cheered as orphans like Rapa and Pare graduated to our Reintegration Units. It was the year that we fell in love with Humpty the hippo and smiled at the antics of Zumzum the monkey. We rooted for our field teams as they de-shared giraffes, reunited elephant calves with their mums, and helped a group of hungry lion cubs. 2017 also marked our 40th anniversary — and as we celebrate four decades of conservation work, we also look forward to making even more progress for Kenya’s wildlife in the decades to come.
Our most popular post of 2017 was the video of Sala bathing tiny Toto, and in honor of New Year’s Eve, here is an extended look at the moment between the kudu and dik-dik.
From all of us at the DSWT, happy New Year!

Regranned from #dswt - Tiny Toto has stolen all our hearts, but Sala is particularly smitten. Despite the fact that she barely got to know her own mother – Sala was orphaned at just one week old – the kudu’s maternal instincts are strong and she has taken it upon herself to look after Toto. The baby dik-dik loves all the attention and is becoming rather spoiled!
We are currently raising Sala and Toto at our Kaluku Field HQ. When they’re old enough, both orphans will be reintegrated back into nearby wild herds, but between now and then, we foresee lots of pampering in their futures.
