Photo by @amivitale . wildlife keeper kamara has spent 10 years at lewa wildlife conservancy (@lewa_wildlife ) and is an expert in caring for orphaned animals, from baby rhinos to lions and now he is working at reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) where he is raising an orphaned baby rhino but also gives love to the elephants when they need it. the team will work to rehabilitate these orphaned and abandoned elephants and reunite them with their wild herds. read more about reteti in my @natgeo story: https://tinyurl.com/kvopc69

If it's been one of those days.... sit back, relax and cover yourself in mud!
this is loijipu, a black rhino who was very sadly abandoned by his mother at just 3 days old. he is getting a body rub from his keeper john, who has become a leading expert in hand rearing rhino. loijipu couldn't be in better hands, and one day he will be heading back to sera conservancy which is where his mother still lives! #northkenya #natureisspeaking #retetielephants #bethechange @kenyawildlifeservice @nrt_kenya

Video by @amivitale. a baby elephant takes a splash in the cooling mud at reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) in northern kenya. elephants cover themselves in mud as a shield against the harsh sun and the rescued elephants being cared for at reteti are instinctively teaching each other many of these useful skills. read more about reteti in my @natgeo story: https://tinyurl.com/kvopc69

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.

#repost @r.e.s.c.u.e ❤️🐘 following muma's tracks. this little calf had fallen in to a very deep well up in the mountains. inaccessible by road or plane. when the #r.e.s.c.u.e team trekked up there on foot and swiftly and smoothly got him out of the well, they were quick to pick up the tracks of the calfs herd. they tracked them for 6 hours. this little calf leading the way. sadly the herd had moved on quickly and we didn't manage to catch up with them. he is called lekeji and is now settled in to the sanctuary. we can't wait for the day lekeji can meet up with his mum and family on these very same mountain paths. ❤️🐘

traditionally in kenya, women are married young and are meant to take care their children and homes. although women had never been keepers before, the community has embraced the new program. today, reteti has a total of 5 women keepers. the community is excited to hear what these women have accomplished, and rush to them when they return home to learn news of each of the elephants in their care.

that feeling when you have to leave the party early. this is little kinyia, only 3 weeks old and well victim. she is too small to stay out all day in the wild with the other elephants so she is being taken home to spend the heat of the day in her cool boma. these are her keepers dorothy and naomi who love her like one of their own, kinyia feels that love and follows them undoubtedly. these women are the change makers of today. ❤️🐘

Regrann from @amivitale - i’m pleased to be taking over the @worldpressphoto venezia account this week to share my photos from my world press photo (@worldpressphoto ) winning @natgeo project, “warriors who once feared elephants now protect them.” reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) is the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of africa. it provides a home to orphaned elephants as a result of poaching, human wildlife conflict and drought related issues. all of these elephants will one day be returned to the wild to live the life they were meant to lead.
reteti lies within a 975,000-acre swath of thorny scrubland in northern kenya known as the namunyak wildlife conservation trust—part of the ancestral homeland of the samburu people. rescued elephants are looked after by local keepers from the samburu community. what’s happening at reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way humans relate to wild animals. 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.
