Darf ich vorstellen? Diese hübsche Elefantendame heisst Malima und ist seit kurzem das Patenkind von meinem Mann und mir. Wieso, wo und wie genau könnt ihr auf meinem Blog nachlesen.

A game of “Guess Who?” for you: You may know this calf best as the Nursery’s resident nurturer, but when we rescued her as a tiny calf, she needed some comforting herself!

@Regranned from @dswt -  Because of his bullet wounds, Luggard moves a bit more slowly than the rest of the orphan herd —  but he has good friends who walk beside him every step of the way. His lovely morning ritual with Musiara is case in point: Upon waking up, the younger bull waits outside Luggard’s stockade (sometimes even knocking on the door to get his attention!) and then they stroll side-by-side into the forest, often with trunks intertwined. • This #dswtfosterfriday, you too can support Luggard by fostering him!

@dswt -  The orphans at the DSWT Nursery spend their days exploring Nairobi National Park. These outings are a bit like school; they learn different “lessons” in the bush, from playing nicely with others to identifying yummy plants to eat. Maktao seems to be having trouble with today’s particular lesson. Although it may look like he’s sucking his trunk (something babies do for comfort), he is actually trying to put a tiny twig in his mouth — without much success! This isn’t surprising; elephants have over 40,000 muscles in their trunks, so it may take Maktao quite some time to master all of them. • • Video © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #maktao #maktaodswt #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #nairobi #dswtnursery #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #nairobinationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #worthmorealive #ivorybelongstoelephants #bekindtoelephants

SAVE ELEPHANTS 🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘#Repost @thealphafemale_ ・・・ 💕🐘💕#Repost @dswt . . 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! • This year, and every year, we’re committed to giving these different personalities the personalized care that they deserve.

from @dswt -  Today marks Musiara’s one-year #rescueversary! On 14 January 2017, a film crew spotted a herd browsing in the Maasai Mara. They quickly realized that all was not how it should be, however: A tiny calf, who appeared to be a stranger to the other elephants, was struggling behind them. They alerted the DSWT, we initiated a rescue, and the rest is history. We’re still not sure how Musiara became separated from his mother, but he is now a very happy member of our Nursery herd and has no shortage of little friends. He is especially fond of Luggard; they spend much of their days together and always have each other’s backs. Musiara will even sleep with his head against the wall he shares with Luggard’s stockade, so they might be close even through the night! • Musiara will be in our care for many years to come, until he’s eventually ready to return to a life in the wild.

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
Who else felt like this elephant this morning? 🐘🐘🐘 #agesapparel 📷@dswt It’s not uncommon for the orphans in our Nursery herd to get tuckered out (after all, exploring and playing all day can be exhausting) and take a midday nap. Sometimes, the sleepy feeling is infectious: When Maktao recently settled down for some shut-eye, Malkia decided to stand guard over him so the little calf could slumber undisturbed. However, it wasn’t long before the older girl was napping too! The Keepers let them both sleep in peace, only waking them up when it was time for their afternoon milk feed. 📷@dswt • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust / Freya Dowson

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!

Baby is in good hands #trunkupwines #bekindtoelephants ・・・ How many Keepers does it take to lift an orphaned elephant to safety? In this case, quite a few! After a 22-month gestation period — the longest of any mammal — even a newborn calf can weigh as much as 200 pounds (90 kilograms). Many of the orphans that come into our care are older but still milk-dependent, meaning it’s an all-hands-on-deck affair to rescue them. • Be they tiny (like Ndotto, who we rescued as a two-day-old) or tremendous (like Kelelari, who came into our care as a four-year-old), we are committed to helping any orphaned elephant in need.

Thank you all for your amazing and warm birthday wishes. Mother Nature also played a part and I got stung by a bee 🐝 yesterday evening 😒 I took it in great stride and welcomed it as Her way of acknowledging my existence...sometimes we think She's not watching and that was Her "Hey there girlie! Welcome to 30!" speech. I appreciate you Mother Nature, and @Google for your quick response on how to sort out a bee sting 😅 Mama always say, "Take it with a pinch of salt." So I look at it as a blessing. A recognition from the Divine ❤ Man, I'm blessed!  I also acknowledge my friends who I am proud to call my family. I spent the day today with the amazing and spectacular rare gem 💎 @justmonversation who treated me to more of Mother Nature, by having me meet the most adorable baby elephants @dswt (you have to go there when you visit Kenya!) and to top it all, sloppy kisses from giraffes @giraffecentre_ (two MUST DO activities in Nairobi)! Indeed I am blessed.  As Kukinta Design grows, I hope to share more life and digital marketing expertise. This is my second baby and I am proud of the 3 months gone. Thank you all for your continued support and I hope we can do more.  My last thoughts of the day, find a mantra you can live by. Mine is create, design, inspire, grow, repeat ☄  #kukintadesign #kukintabloom #brandstyling #socialmediamanagement #influencermanagement #savvybusinessowner #creativeentrepreneur #mompreneur #bossbabe #collaborationovercompetition #flatlaytoday #wcw #creativecommunication #visualbranding #ivorybelongstoelephants #saynotopoaching #dswtnursery #bekindtoelephants #magicalkenya #tembeakenya #savetheelephants #handsoffourelephants #giraffecentre #dswt #gratitude #mothernaturesbeauty #🐘 #elephantsanctuary #giraffekisses
