🐘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 🙏🏻 #repost @dswt 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.

#repost @dswt ・・・ 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! #dswtfieldsuccessstories • • • Photos © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt @kenyawildlifeservice #dswtmobilevetunit #mobilevets #dswtdesnaring #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #antipoaching #elephant #savetheelephants  #amboseli #wildliferescue #dswtfieldsuccessstories

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 #repost @dswt ・・・ 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! • To foster Mwashoti, click the link in our bio or visit: thedswt.org/mwashoti • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust / Freya Dowson #dswt #mwashoti #mwashotidswt #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #nairobi #dswtnursery #africa #murera #mureradswt #umanisprings #kibweziforest #umanispringsreintegrationunit #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #nairobinationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #bekindtoelephants
regram @dswt Rapa, Pare, and Maramoja have been at our Ithumba Reintegration Unit for a month now, and we’re happy to report that the recent Nursery graduates are doing wonderfully in their new home. 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! • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #rapa #rapadswt #pare #paredswt #maramoja #maramojadswt #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #tsavo #tsavonationalpark #ithumba #ithumbareintegrationunit #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #nairobinationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #bekindtoelephants

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!

LETS CONSERVE OUR WILDLIFE @dswt -  Between all the rumbles, trumpets, trunk gestures, and more, elephant language isn’t an easy one to master! Our experienced Keepers are about as well-versed in it as a human can be, and now, you too can speak ‘Elephant.’ #helloinelephant is the result of decades of research into the communications and behaviors of these remarkable animals.

Young Elephants 🐘 on The March With keepers from The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  This is a #repost from @dswt via (@get_repost) ・・・ 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.

BEAUTIFUL!! 😍 #repost @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. • www.thedswt.org • • • Video © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust #dswt #sala #saladswt #toto #totodswt #kudu #dikdik #antelope #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #conservation #saynotopoaching  #racingextinction #jointheherd #worthmorealive #kaluku #kalukufield #dswtat40

#repost from @dswt with @regram.app ... 2017 was a milestone year for the DSWT: It marked our 40th anniversary!

Meet Toto  Follow @dswt  and support the cause 😍 #repost @dswt (@get_repost) ・・・ 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! • www.thedswt.org • • • Video © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust #dswt #sala #saladswt #toto #totodswt #kudu #dikdik #antelope #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #conservation #saynotopoaching  #racingextinction #jointheherd #worthmorealive #kaluku #kalukufield #dswtat40 #2018 #happynewyear
