It looks like Malkia and Tagwa have been working on their synchronized slurping routine!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While milk may seem like a simple enough necessity, it took years of trial-and-error for Daphne Sheldrick to develop the first formula that could sustain orphaned elephants. Our late founder’s legacy lives on through successes like Malkia and Tagwa, who would not be alive today were it not for her groundbreaking work.

IS THIS TRUE???
@evrensener
・・・
The Duke of Cambridge supports the return of elephant trophy hunting in Botswana because it could help conserve threatened species, according to the country’s leader.

President Masisi met privately with the duke this week in London at a conference on illegal wildlife trade. They discussed the problem of Botswana having too many elephants and the damage they caused to livelihoods.

Campaigners condemned the president’s plans to lift the ban on trophy hunting last night, saying killing wildlife for sport could not be justified on conservation grounds.

In his speech opening the conference, the duke spoke of his fear that elephants, tigers and rhinos could be extinct in the wild by the time his children were in their 20s.

Wiva turns three today! We’re celebrating by revisiting her first day on this planet. It feels like just yesterday that Wendi — an orphaned elephant who we rescued, raised, and reintegrated back into the wild — arrived at our stockades to introduce us to her hours-old newborn. As you can see, everyone was over the moon about Wiva’s birth, and over the past three years, that love has only grown.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wiva’s mum and many nannies have their trunks full raising this little calf. Meanwhile, we’re busy working behind the scenes to ensure that all the elephants in this video — and many, many more — are protected from threats and has a safe place to call home. You can help us by contributing to our limited Guardians of the Wild campaign — and if you donate today, your DONATION WILL BE DOUBLED thanks to generous matching partners!

The depth of their care knows no bounds #trunkupwines @dswt ・・・
Maktao and the other orphans know exactly who to go to when they need a helping hand. Whether it’s giving a trunk massage to help clear the babies’ noses or guiding them to the tastiest greens in the forest, our incredible Keepers are happy to help at every turn.

Not a Bottle Baby! #trunkupwines

Namalok, meanwhile, remains resolutely anti-bottle. Most orphans eventually take to this new style of drinking, but the four-year-old has eschewed it since day one, opting instead to enjoy milk from his own personal pail.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We rescued Namalok last September, at the height of the drought. To learn more about this unique little bull’s story, visit:

Freedom to me: 1) The ability to move through space without being stopped & questioned. 2) The ability to move through time without regrets or anxiety. 3) The ability to decide how I spend my time and who I spend it with. 4) The ability to carve my life into a beautiful piece of art. 5) The ability to speak my mind and be heard & uncensored. 6) The ability to alter and expand my mind to solve problems and experience the fullness of reality & my consciousness. 8) To have autonomy over my body and how I love and nourish it as well as challenge and provoke it. 9) the ability to learn about whatever interests me no matter how controversial or cutting edge. 10) To live fully & fearlessly. This is freedom.

An amazing rescue! #trunkupwines

Meet Dololo, our newest addition to the foster program!
On September 9, a calf was spotted floating in a dam, with just the tip of his trunk poking above the water’s edge — see photo 2. The 18-month-old was in extremely poor condition and had several health issues to contend with, from an eye infection (the result of being submerged in water) to a severe parasite infestation (which is the reason he was so weak and got stuck in the dam to begin with, we believe). Now, a month since his rescue, Dololo is on the mend and getting stronger every day. He’s taken to the milk bottle with great enthusiasm — see photo 3 — and really enjoys his excursions out into the forest with the other orphans.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dololo will remain in our care until he’s ready to return to a life in the wild. You can support his journey by fostering him this #DSWTFosterFriday! Visit:

"I for one am not willing to look my children in the eye and say that we were the generation that let this happen on our watch." - The Duke of Cambridge speaking about the 'heartbreaking' thought of elephants, rhinos and tigers being extinct in the wild by the time his children are in their twenties. #EndWildlifeCrime @kensingtonroyal @unitedforwildlife
