Each day, close to 100 elephants are killed for their tusks, threatening their future. At the current poaching rate, elephants will be extinct in the wild by 2025. Many elephants targeted by poachers have milk dependent calves, and without family or a mother, a baby elephant has little chance of survival. Through the dedication and hard work of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, rescued orphaned baby elephants now have a second chance at life in the wild. Currently, the DSWT has 25 milk dependent calves and more than 150 orphans in their care. Some of you may recognize DSWT from my posts about my foster elephant Roi - she is an orphan currently in their care who I help provide for through my sister's Christmas-present donation. It really is a wonderful organization and I would love to be able to raise money through this run to help them even more. Anything you could give would be greatly appreciated - by me, by Roi, and by all the other baby elephants! Thank you so much for your support!
