THE STORY:

The Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage is located near Nairobi National Park. This orphanage for Elephant Calves and Rhinos from all over Kenya was founded and still managed by Daphne Sheldrick, the widow of one of Kenya's best known Game Wardens David Sheldrick.

David Sheldrick was at the centre of the 1970's Ivory poaching wars in Tsavo National Park.

Today, the Sheldrick orphanage is a focal point for Elephant Conservation.

Elephant calves orphanned by poaching are brought here from all over the country. They receive extremely specialized treatment here, and literally receive personal care 24 hours a day from highly dedicated staff who become surrogate mothers to the calves.

Eventually the calves are moved to Tsavo, where they are carefully reintroduced into wild herds.
