Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
Sheldrick Wildlife Trust rescues and raises orphaned baby elephants and releases them back to the wild within seven years. Sheldrick’s elephanticians have learned how to “parent” elephants without domesticating them. You can meet the Sheldrick orphans either at a public viewing, at a sponsor’s visit, or in private having time alone with the young ones and their keepers. Emotional bonds are crucial to survival in elephant society and Sheldrick seeks to raise the elephants in ways that mirror maternal care in the wild. We invite you to visit the orphanage and meet the elephant caregivers. Learn about Sheldrick’s many other projects that support elephant conservation in cooperation with Kenyan communities.
