1) you can make a donation to the reteti elephant sanctuary community united for elephants. every dollar you give will directly support the work we do. $31.50 provides enough milk for one elephant for one day. $375 feeds all of our elephants for one day. when you make a donation, you're giving a special gift to someone in your life, as well as to our orphans.

Photo by @amivitale. the last few days have been a worrying time for africa's elephants. the indication from u.s. on lifting a ban on importing hunted elephant trophies policy decisions has underscored just how vulnerable elephant populations are and how much needs to be done to protect them. we are committed, more than ever, in providing homes for orphaned elephants and creating a society that appreciates and treasures all elephants.
if you are able to join us in creating and sustaining protective, nurturing and empowering environments for both the wildlife and the people whose economic livelihoods depend on it, please make a donation to reteti today. link in profile.
in this photo, keeper lemarash watches over his ward, warges. warges was rescued from right here, nearby reteti. his mother had bullet wounds in her foot and died of septicimia as a result. he is named after the largest peak in the matthews range, and he himself is the largest elephant in the herd and despite all he's been through, he's a big softy - a happy, friendly, easy going guy who loves to eat.
Congratulations to dan hammer (@econohammer) , recipient of the first ever pritzker emerging environmental genius award. dan is the co-founded earth genome, a nonprofit organization that seeks to put environmental data in the hands of decision makers. his current project, overview news, would give journalists and other storytellers easy access to satellite imagery—and help them understand it. the end goal is supporting environmental news that is more lucid and reliable.
we are thrilled for dan and his vital work and so honored to have had katie rowe representing reteti among the distinguished finalists for this tremendous prize.
