Sad news from Tsavo this morning- the long-standing and much-loved matriarch Dida has passed away. ⁣

Dida died from old age, which really is a blessing. She surpassed all expectations for how long she would live and we can be safe in the knowledge that the work @tsavotrust and @kenyawildlifeservice are doing is still making a huge difference to the elephants of Tsavo⁣

Or thoughts are with the teams on the ground ️⁣

Posted @withrepost • @tsavotrust The Queen of Tsavo has passed.

She leaves behind a great legacy and a great many mourners, both human and elephant.

As we remember Dida, we decided to use this week’s blog article as an exploration of how elephant treat with the death of a herd-member.
