Video by @amivitale | Wild adult elephants drink and cool off at a watering on the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy. An elephant’s trunk typically holds around half of a gallon of water, but a big bull elephant can hold as much as 2.5 gallons. After spraying themselves, the elephants will often coat themselves with dust which acts as a bug repellent and sunblock.

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. Reteti operates 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.

Follow @amivitale @conservationorg & @r.e.s.c.u.e to learn about the incredible work being done to protect and preserve these magical beings.

“This is a beautiful environmental portrait of an artist in his studio. I love how directional the light is coming through the window and shedding light on the details of his craft. I love it.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)
