Wild adult elephants drink and cool off at a watering on the #namunyak wildlife conservancy. an elephant’s trunk typically holds around half of a gallon of water, but a big bull elephant can hold as much as 2.5 gallons. after spraying themselves, the elephants will often coat themselves with dust which acts as a bug repellent and sunblock. these are some of the wild elephants we hope our orphans will one day be able to join.

namunyak wildlife conservancy is our home. we at reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) are the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in africa. we provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. you can support us and the people who protect wildlife. make a $10 contribution in support of reteti for a chance to win a trip to kenya, see dave matthews (@davematthewsband ) in concert, take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by dave and receive a @nikonusa d7500 18-300mm vr lens kit with @prizeo (link in profile). not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. the first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by elephant gems (@elephantgems ). we operate in partnership with conservation international (@conservationorg ) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the reteti community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.

Mike learka gives some loving to nadasoit on the left and little lemorijo, two orphaned elephants here at @r.e.s.c.u.e in northern kenya.
we always feel such pride when we hear @amivitale's description of our work. "what’s happening at reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way samburus relate to wild animals they have long feared. this oasis where orphans grow up, learning to be wild so that one day they can rejoin their herds, is as much about the people as it is about elephants." this is exactly what we work towards, every single day.
if you are interested in supporting the work we do here, @davematthewsband with conservation international (@conservationorg ) has launched an amazing sweepstakes through @prizeo. for just a $10 contribution, you would win a trip to see dave on the final show of this summer's tour in hollywood and a trip to come visit us and our friends at lewa wildlife conservancy (@lewa_wildlife ) on a luxury safari. learn more at http://prizeo.com/elephants (link in profile). photo by @amivitale.

Wishing everyone a joyful and productive endangered species day! we want to thank you for your ongoing support which allows us to care for and protect marvelous animals like loijipu. black rhinos, like loijipu, are critically endangered because of rising demand for his horn, despite the fact that it is composed mainly of just keratin, the same substance that is in your fingernails and hair.
we operate in partnership with conservation international (@conservationorg ) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the reteti community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.
for those wishing to get involved right now, and maybe even reward themselves in the meantime, @davematthewsband has just launched an incredible @prizeo fundraiser for us here at reteti. for just a $10 contribution, you will receive a chance to win a trip to kenya, see dave matthews in concert, take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by dave and receive a @nikonusa d7500 18-300mm vr lens kit.

Sosian and lingwezi. these two are best friends and have been since day 1.
they both lost their mothers around the same time during one of north kenya’s worst droughts. they seem to understand each other and support each other.

thank you to recent @r.e.s.c.u.e visitor dani moore for this wonderful photograph of the two of them.

Happy mother's day weekend! we love this article, “3 reasons elephants make the best mothers” that @conservationorg's morgan lynch wrote. we also love that shaba and our amazing keeper team get some well deserved shout outs. have a read! you'll learn at least 3 new things.

Pokot expertly fields the ball. the question really is, can naomi keep up?

pokot came to us as a drought victim. after days of intensive care, exciting signs of playfulness began to emerge. today, pokot has inserted himself as a keeper favorite, entertaining everyone with his endless games.
if you'd like to support pokot and the rest of the herd as they get big and strong and prepare to return to the wilderness, please consider making a donation to reteti at the link in our profile.

“a nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.” here, mary lengees, one of reteti's first female elephant keepers, cares for suyian, the first resident. suyian was rescued in september 2016 when she was just four weeks old.
