The Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) is the story about how warriors who once feared elephants have become their protectors. All men working at Reteti were at some point warriors or are currently warriors, It’s a tribal rite of passage that every young man becomes a warrior.

What’s happening here at Reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way Samburus relate to wild animals they have long feared. 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.
You can be a part of Reteti and join us in protecting wildlife. You might even win a trip to see us. For $10 contribution in support of Reteti, you will be entered for a chance to win a trip here, another trip to see Dave Matthews in concert and take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by Dave and receive a @nikonusa D7500 18-300mm VR Lens Kit with @prizeo (Link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems). Reteti operates in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create even bigger, lasting impacts worldwide.
This film is a collaboration by @amivitale with @danehenrydigital and @brettlowell.

Photo by @amivitale. With a heavy heart, I share this news and hope that Sudan's legacy will awaken us to protect this magnificent and fragile planet. On March 19th, wildlife ranger Joseph Wachira, 26 comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino left on this planet moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralov in the #Czechrepublic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him at @olpejeta after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. Sudan has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. Thousands have trooped to Ol Pejeta to see him and he has helped raise awareness for rhino conservation. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. Research into new Assisted Reproductive Techniques for large mammals is underway due to him. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF.
In 2009, I had the privilege of following this gentle hulking creature on his journey from the snowy Dvur Krulov zoo in the Czech Republic to the warm plains of Kenya, when he was transported with three of his fellow Northern White Rhinos in a last ditch effort to save the subspecies. It was believed that the air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time, there were 8 Northern white rhinos alive, all in zoos. Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind. Follow @olpejeta and @amivitale to learn more what we can all do to #coexist.

Naomi embraces Nadasoit here at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e). Now that Nadasoit has become big and strong, she is following in the footsteps of the matriarch of the herd. She cares for the littlest, keeping them close to her and comforts those who are mourning or sad. She also teaches those younger than her how to do important things, like find the best brush to eat or how to navigate difficult passages in their daily walks.

Reteti, located 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. We operate in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.

You can help support us and maybe win some incredible prizes yourself. For a contribution of just $10, you will be entered for a chance to win a luxury safari to visit us, a second trip to see @davematthewsband in concert, meet Dave and take home a @rockbridgeguitar, and a @nikonusa D7500 18-300mm VR Lens Kit.

from @amivitale - To celebrate #Earthday, I’m pleased to announce that my photo of Kamara and Kilifi will be part of @natgeocreative’s Flash Sale of collectible prints that capture wildlife and wild places. The sale runs only this week from April 20th-28th. Visit the link in my profile to see all the available signed prints on sale for $100.
In this image, Kamara, a Kenyan rhino keeper is nuzzled by black rhino Kilifi who he hand-raised along with two other baby rhinos Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife) in Kenya. Kamara spends 12 hours every day watching over the vulnerable baby rhinos. If you went back 50 years, this is where one of the densest populations of black rhinos lived but today most people living here have never seen a rhino in their life despite it being the most perfect habitat for them. In 2 generations, this animal was poached almost to extinction. These communities and people like Kamara hold the key to saving Africa's great animals.

Amazing people all over the world are saving elephants , one by one. @game_rangers_international inZambia is doing incredible work . Look at this new orphaned 🐘 who was found in time , fingers crossed for this precious life. #Repost @game_rangers_international ・・・
Just this Tuesday, the Elephant Orphanage Project (EOP) coordinated its most rapid rescue to date with a 12-hour turn around from orphan alert to securing the calf in the Nursery stables thanks to @royalaircharters!

The Department of National Parks and Wildlife responded to an orphaned elephant alert by the Livingstone Fish Farm and quickly captured the six-month-old calf. The frightened little calf was taken to the nearby ‘Elephant Café’ for stabilization. Being in a secure boma with browse, water and the company of other elephants really helped to minimize her stress whilst our EOP team were busy securing a plane and other logistics for her transportation to the Elephant Nursery in Lusaka.
We raced against the clock to ensure the calf could be moved to the Nursery within the same day. A 2-hour flight to Lusaka and an hour long road trip to the Elephant Nursery, and she was finally tucked up into a stable with a warm blanket.

This little calf is currently known as 43 (being the 43rd elephant assisted by the EOP in the last 10 years). Although initial signs are good, she will not be named until we are more confident in her survival, as she is still incredibly vulnerable and no doubt traumatized by losing her mother.

43 would not have this second chance for life without the quick action of the individuals on the ground. We would like to thank: DNPW Livingstone Warden Daka, DNPW Vet Dr Mwendalumbi, Cliff Welch and all at the Elephant Café, and Doug Reynolds. With massive thanks to Royal Air Charters for their rapid response and donating the plane for her travel. Please help to care for 43 by donating via our JustGiving page (link in bio). #griwildliferescue #weareallrangers #wildliferescue #elephantrescue #elephants #elephantlove #bekindtoelephants #worthmorealive #dontletthemdisappear #zambia

A moment I will never forget!
.
A couple years back, myself, my wife and a couple of friends went to Mana Pools and have one of the most incredible wildlife experiences I have ever had...
.
Having said that, we had one VERY close call with this elephant... .
We watched him have a mud bath and then walk up into this ridge where he then decided that he had had enough of us and decided to charge us! Ears tucked in and trunk wrapped up under his mouth he came charging full speed!
.
Not having cover, we decided to bolt, but this didn’t get us to far as we bogged down in the very mud he was bathing in. My wife tripped and hit the deck... hearing her hit the ground we turned back and helped her to her feet...
.
The elephant stopped a couple of meters in front of us and continued to mock charge as we retreated to the safety of our vehicle...
.
Talk about an adrenaline rush!

Did you know that elephants have a range of vocalizations?

The grunts, gurgles and infrasonic sounds made by elephants are all forms of communication. Not only can an elephant trumpet but they can also squeak, chirp and rumble. Besides vocalizations they make other sounds as they eat, move and bathe.

Trumpeting usually occurs when elephants are highly stimulated. Most sounds come from the larynx but the trumpet is made by pushing air through the trunk. Trumpeting elephants may be lost, excited, angry, playful or surprised.

Low frequency rumbles can be used to communicate over long distances. They can be used when greeting, bonding, threatening or soothing. These rumbles can be quiet and purr-like.

Roaring is part of the elephant vocabulary too and may be used to intimidate or in the response to aggression. High levels of distress or even excitement can make an elephant roar. It may sound quite frightening but it is often the first vocalization expressed during a joyful reunion.

Chirps and Squeaks are unique to Asian elephants and are used to announce news, communicate needs, assemble a group, reassure or lend support.

Elephants love water and bathe, swim, soak, play and socialize and they blow bubbles by expelling air through their trunks.
African elephants and Asian elephants make different sounds largely because of the length of their larynx, while African elephants have extended necks, Asian elephants' are more constricted.

Just this Tuesday, the Elephant Orphanage Project (EOP) coordinated its most rapid rescue to date with a 12-hour turn around from orphan alert to securing the calf in the Nursery stables thanks to @royalaircharters!

The Department of National Parks and Wildlife responded to an orphaned elephant alert by the Livingstone Fish Farm and quickly captured the six-month-old calf. The frightened little calf was taken to the nearby ‘Elephant Café’ for stabilization. Being in a secure boma with browse, water and the company of other elephants really helped to minimize her stress whilst our EOP team were busy securing a plane and other logistics for her transportation to the Elephant Nursery in Lusaka.
We raced against the clock to ensure the calf could be moved to the Nursery within the same day. A 2-hour flight to Lusaka and an hour long road trip to the Elephant Nursery, and she was finally tucked up into a stable with a warm blanket.

This little calf is currently known as 43 (being the 43rd elephant assisted by the EOP in the last 10 years). Although initial signs are good, she will not be named until we are more confident in her survival, as she is still incredibly vulnerable and no doubt traumatized by losing her mother.

43 would not have this second chance for life without the quick action of the individuals on the ground. We would like to thank: DNPW Livingstone Warden Daka, DNPW Vet Dr Mwendalumbi, Cliff Welch and all at the Elephant Café, and Doug Reynolds. With massive thanks to Royal Air Charters for their rapid response and donating the plane for her travel. Please help to care for 43 by donating via our JustGiving page (link in bio). #griwildliferescue #weareallrangers #wildliferescue #elephantrescue #elephants #elephantlove #bekindtoelephants #worthmorealive #dontletthemdisappear #zambia

The Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) is the story about how warriors who once feared elephants have become their protectors. All men working at Reteti were at some point warriors or are currently warriors, It’s a tribal rite of passage that every young man becomes a warrior.

What’s happening here at Reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way Samburus relate to wild animals they have long feared. 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.
You can be a part of Reteti and join us in protecting wildlife. You might even win a trip to see us. For $10 contribution in support of Reteti, you will be entered for a chance to win a trip here, another trip to see Dave Matthews in concert and take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by Dave and receive a @nikonusa D7500 18-300mm VR Lens Kit with @prizeo (Link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems). Reteti operates in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create even bigger, lasting impacts worldwide.

Photo by @amivitale. With a heavy heart, I share this news and hope that Sudan's legacy will awaken us to protect this magnificent and fragile planet. On March 19th, wildlife ranger Joseph Wachira, 26 comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino left on this planet moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralov in the #Czechrepublic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him at @olpejeta after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. Sudan has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. Thousands have trooped to Ol Pejeta to see him and he has helped raise awareness for rhino conservation. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. Research into new Assisted Reproductive Techniques for large mammals is underway due to him. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF.
In 2009, I had the privilege of following this gentle hulking creature on his journey from the snowy Dvur Krulov zoo in the Czech Republic to the warm plains of Kenya, when he was transported with three of his fellow Northern White Rhinos in a last ditch effort to save the subspecies. It was believed that the air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time, there were 8 Northern white rhinos alive, all in zoos. Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind. Follow @olpejeta and @amivitale to learn more what we can all do to #coexist.

Sweet Pelu eating two of her favorites, bamboo and cabbage. Although her appetite and mood shifts often and what is her favorite today may be refused the next, these two are a pretty safe bet.

Orphaned baby elephants of the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) spend most of their day in the wild, learning to BE wild. They spend every day from 6am to 6pm in the wildness learning to graze, browse and be a part of the wild so that when it’s time to re-introduce them, they will be prepared.
We at Reteti are proud to operate in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.

I could keep throwing statistics at you about #plasticpollution but the impacts of these numbers are becoming inconceivable. For those who are lucky enough to visit the coasts, our worlds staggering use of plastic becomes evident within steps on to the sand. To observe to true impacts of the issue we would have to head to sea. The majority of plastic pollution is found in the ocean, ingested by animals or found at a microscopic level. Next time you're the beach #take3forthesea #DontLetThemDisappear

A collaboration with @amivitale. Wild elephants drink water at the #Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, home to Africa’s second largest population of elephants and according to the latest census, that population has grown by 12% since 2012 while poaching has fallen.
Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy is home to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), 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.
