Staying cool after a hot lunchtime! Left to right orphan elephants: Kakaro, Kasewe, Njanji, Mulisani, and Mkaliva hanging out in the mud at nursery 🐘 🐘 🐘 🐘 🐘 - For around 10 years DSWF has been supporting the @game_rangers_international Elephant Orphanage Project in Zambia to care for orphans like these; victims of poaching for ivory. The Nursery provides the round-the-clock care needed as the little ones grow and recover from the trauma of losing their families. - These little ones are still in need of continuous care and bottle feeding. Once weaned, the elephants will be relocated to the project’s Release Facility in Kafue National Park. Here they will be protected while they begin a process of learning to be fully integrated back into the wild. During regular bush walks, they will come into contact with some of the wild herds that they will one day re-join. - DSWF has been supporting conservation in Zambia for many years. You can help rescue, rehabilitate and return orphaned elephants to the wild by donating, find out more via the link in our Bio. - - - Thank you @game_rangers_international for the video #gamerangersinternational#elephants#elephant#babyelephants#dswf#dswf_conservation #orphanelephants#nursery#playinginthemud#savingwildlife#zambia#wildlife#wildlifeaddicts#saveelephants#cuteanimals#protectelephants#mud#madbath
Two years we climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro in honor of protecting these beautiful creatures from extinction. Please support orgs like VETPAW who are working hard to stop poaching in Africa. A 🌎 without 🐘 would be desolate and disastrous! @vetpaw @theglobalactivista @ryan_vetpaw #jewelrywithmeaning#stoppoaching#protectelephants#elephantsneverforget 🐘❤️🐘🌎🙏🏻
👏🐘🙏 @Regrann from @pengolifeproject - Happy ending per questo elefante, avvistato la scorsa settimana con una lancia che fuoriusciva dalla schiena. Dopo l'immediato trattamento da parte dei veterinari del DSWT e del KWS la prognosi è positiva per un completo recupero. Grazie a tutti i supporters che hanno reso possibile il progetto delle unità veterinarie del David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, assicurando agli animali feriti l'aiuto che necessitano! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - THE DAVID SHELDRICK WILDLIFE TRUST #happyendings: Last week, we came to the aid of this injured elephant Spotted with a spear protruding from his back, it was clear he needed immediate assistance and the DSWT funded Mount Kenya Vet Unit quickly mobilised to alleviate his suffering. Thankfully the operation was a success and, after treatment and a dose of antibiotics from the KWS Vet, he was back on his feet with a positive prognosis for a full recovery. This was all achieved thanks to our wonderful supporters, who make our Veterinary project, in partnership with the KWS, possible. Thank you to all who have donated, ensuring injured animals get help at their most desperate time of need. #pengolifeproject#dswt#orphansproject#kws#happyending#supporter#grazie#thankyou#elephant#elefante#saveelephants#elephantconservation#protectelephants#helpelephants#aiutiamoliavivereora#fortheloveofelephants#peramoredeglielefanti
Did you know? Elephant Gin sells its gin range under Satao Gin exclusively in the Benelux countries. Satao is the name of one of the world’s largest elephants. By logic, his size should have made him unreachable for any natural predators. However, in today’s world of environmental destruction, Satao fell prey to poachers for his ivory in March 2014. Telling Satao’s story reminds people around the globe that the need to protect the African elephant is bigger than ever.
