❀️🐘 little lemorijo's trunk hug to matiba while slurping his bottle has stolen my heart ❀️
these rapidly growing orphaned baby elephants are fed two litre bottles of special formula every three hours, 24-hours per day. that means lemorijo, in the more than 8 months he's been at reteti, has d***k more than 2,000 bottles of milk.
reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ), in northern kenya is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in africa. the sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild.

Sweetest video ever! really observe the gentle & inquisitive nature of the beautiful baby black rhino. hard to imagine that humans hack of their horns, and not just cutting them off allowing them to grow back - but killing and brutalizing these modern gentle dinosaurs... seeing the images of these poached thinks changed me. it was so visceral i could not remain silent. please be a voice for love, for truth, for justice and for goodness. happy rhino friday via @cinergizerbunny

reteti resident black #rhino loijipu was only a day old when he was abandoned. now 6 months old, expert wildlife keeper mary and her colleagues will feed and care for him until he is old enough to be released back into the wild.

This is the video of the very first moment our newest orphan loisaba was introduced to the rest of the herd on thursday. nadasoit, his first friend, came barreling down the hill to meet loisaba. they then began to intertwine trunks, like little children holding hands. the other elephants, followed, excited to see him and eager to get to know him. they followed loisaba everywhere for the rest of the afternoon.

read our latest blog about how loisaba came to live at reteti on our website. (link in profile.) and follow @loisaba_conservancy who facilitated loisaba’s rescue & was the inspiration for his name to learn more about their important work. #elephants #dontletthemdisappear #saveelephants #retetielephants #northkenya #elephant #kenya #namunyak #saveelephants @nrt_kenya @conservationorg @tusk_org @sararacamp @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @natgeo #stoppoaching

elephants are so pure and precious. it’s heartbreaking that so many babies keep getting orphaned due to human greed. these babies should be living wild and free with their mothers and herds. we need to do more to save these gentle beings. #friends #innocence #bekindtoelephants #stoppoaching #saveelephants #worthmorealive

video by @amivitale | splish, splash, it's mud bath time! all the elephant calves roll, loll or kick up some fun at reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) in northern kenya. the sanctuary rescues and cares for elephant calves who were orphaned as a result of drought, human-wildlife conflict and poaching. when they are old enough, the elephants will be reintroduced into the wild, where they have a good chance of reuniting with the herds they were initially separated from.

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. learn more about how you can get involved and help support this vital initiative by following @amivitale @r.e.s.c.u.e & @conservationorg

We have another, wonderful new elephant at the sanctuary. we'd like everyone to welcome loisaba. he came to us by plane from @loisaba_conservancy where he was found malnourished and wandering alone.
here he is, drinking his milk enthusiastically, yesterday, with his keeper, lemarash. he's adjusting beautifully. we'll post more updates on his progress soon. with the addition of loisaba, that brings us up to 11 orphan elephants and one baby rhino at the sanctuary.

Here's a remarkable glimpse at the work being done to rescue and keep northern kenyan elephants in northern kenya.
it takes a ton of personal commitment and collaboration between organizations, and we're proud to help travelers meet the people and see these programs up close during their safaris:

Video by @amivitale . happy 2nd anniversary reteti! to celebrate, mud hole fun for everyone. here, shaba tries to playfully squish nadasoit. nadasoit arrived at reteti when she was only 2-weeks-old. as she began to get stronger, she became one of the first orphans that proxy matriach shaba took under her wing. shaba was constantly with nadasoit and nadasoit was constantly with shaba. today, now that nadasoit's a big strong 2-year-old elephant, she's adopted the nurturing traits of shaba, and both constantly care for and help those younger than they are.
it has been an amazing privilege to witness nadasoit's transformation, the transformation of shaba and nadasoit's relationship and the transformation of reteti as it has gone from being a tiny refuge for orphaned and abandoned elephant calves to a world renowned facility that has helped rescue and nurture more than 34 elephant calves while drving the growth of all important community based conservation throughout northern kenya in just two short years. thank you for following along on this journey and supporting reteti every step of the way.

wiva turns three today! we’re celebrating by revisiting her first day on this planet. it feels like just yesterday that wendi — an orphaned elephant who we rescued, raised, and reintegrated back into the wild — arrived at our stockades to introduce us to her hours-old newborn. as you can see, everyone was over the moon about wiva’s birth, and over the past three years, that love has only grown.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
wiva’s mum and many nannies have their trunks full raising this little calf. meanwhile, we’re busy working behind the scenes to ensure that all the elephants in this video — and many, many more — are protected from threats and has a safe place to call home. you can help us by contributing to our limited guardians of the wild campaign — and if you donate today, your donation will be doubled thanks to generous matching partners! click the in our bio or visit:

Elephants are highly emotional animals and when a baby elephant loses its mother, it will grieve.

here we have mary lengees comforting 'suyian', the very first rescue elephant at reteti elephant sanctuary in kenya. they're the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in africa. when a calf makes it through a tough time, everyone at reteti celebrates.

we want to extend a huge thank you to our friends at david sheldrick wildlife trust (@dswt ) for their incredible work yesterday. after the team at reteti saw a 30-year-old female elephant who had been wounded by a spear, kenya wildlife service sent the incredible david sheldrick wildlife trust (@dswt ) meru mobile veterinary unit led by dr bernard rono of @kenyawildlifeservice. the team worked with reteti keepers to tranquilize the elephant, treat the wound and quickly get her back on her feet. as you can tell, from the last photo, she's looking great. we'll be keeping a close eye on her over the next few days. it's so good to know that our partnerships mean that elephants in kenya get the help and support they need.

Here is a magnificent photo from the animal friends photo story award nominee ami vitale; her story outlines the work at reteti elephant sanctuary - the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of africa.

just last month we donated £25,000 to the elephant family. we are so pleased to be able to fund such an important conservation project, helping to ensure a safer future for endangered elephants! "a feel-good dirt bath is just the thing in the heat of the day. a coating of soil helps protect sensitive elephant skin by acting as both sunscreen and insect repellent. shaba (lying down) demonstrates how it's done for the younger orphans"

❀️🐘 this adorable, wobbly baby named gawa, was born 2 years ago to ex orphan galana. ❀️🐘
galana arrived at the david sheldrick wildlife trust @dswt 14 years ago. the then 14 month old had been found all alone in thick saltbush. she was weak and scared not to be with her mother, who was probably killed by poachers.
in 2011, galana made the decision to return back to the wild and she has been living with a herd of elephants led by another former ex orphan named yatta.
two years ago in september and early one morning, keepers spotted galana and a group of bulls lingering outside the stockades. they noticed galana had a new baby girl, just hours old.
when the keepers opened the stockades, two dependent orphans rushed out to meet the new mother and baby. shortly after that, former orphans joined in the celebration. they were so excited and overcome with joy! trumpeting and charging around, celebrating the new baby.
the dswt named galana's new baby gawa, which means to share in swahili. 😊❀️🐘
