THE STORY:

"Born to Be Wild" is a film that I was very fortunate to see while visiting New York City, that introduced myself (and many others) to the amazing work of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT). Dame Daphne Sheldrick and her daughter, Angela, along with an incredible staff, work tirelessly day and night to rescue, raise and reintegrate orphaned elephants into the wild- most who have been orphaned due to ivory poaching. Inspiring really does not do justice for the admirable work this outstanding group of people continues to accomplish.

They have continued their work by not only rescuing orphaned elephants and rhinos, but also by providing anti-poaching teams, veterinary services to all animals in the Tsavo region, and other local areas, along with community outreach programs which promote education and benefit local schools.

I have personally "fostered" a number of orphans, and follow the work of these dedicated people, and it would mean the world to me (and the adorable baby elephants!) if you would support this group as I work diligently to represent the extraordinary work of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Thank you in advance!

DSWT mission statement (courtesy of the DSWT website): "The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safe-guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand-rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with the other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown."
