bluelle137 #repostsave @natgeo with @repostsaveapp ・・・ photo by @amivitale. shaba, the proxy matriarch of the reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) herd teaches younger orphan bawa how to forage and find the juiciest bits on the tree. under the eye of caretakers, shaba leads her small herd into the bush outside the sanctuary, stripping leaves, tasting bark, pushing down small trees, taking mud baths. elephants are ecosystem “engineers” who feed on low brush and bulldoze small trees, promoting growth of grasses, which in turn attract bulk grazers like buffalo, endangered grevy’s zebras, eland, and oryx, themselves prey for carnivores: lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, leopards. @r.e.s.c.u.e, the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of africa, provides a home to orphaned elephants and is leading a transformation in the way samburus relate to wild animals they once feared. read the full story in @natgeo and follow @amivitale and @r.e.s.c.u.e to learn more about their important work. #bekindtoelephants #dontletthemdisappear @nrt_kenya @tusk_org @conservationorg @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @thephotosociety #elephants #saveelephants #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #photojournalism #amivitale #protectelephants
