A lot of tender loving care goes into raising the elephant orphans at Nairobi’s Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Just like humans, the young elephant’s formative years are incredibly⁣
important. The amazing keepers pour their heart and soul into looking after them and ensuring they are prepared when their time comes to go back to the wild ️ ⁣

Posted @withregram • @sheldricktrust In the wild, raising an elephant calf is a family affair. The same applies to our orphans. That is where our Keepers come in, providing the love and support these babies need to thrive. For, just like with humans, elephants’ formative years influence the creatures they become as adults. When they grow up feeling loved, they are able to embody those values as adults, nurturing their own families in the same manner.
