Loijipu, the reteti resident orphaned #rhino, who is not so little anymore, meanders through the landscape here on #namunyak conservancy in northern #kenya. he came to us when he was just two days old. now, he is two years old. he has gotten big and strong in the care of his three devoted keepers and is developing a nice big horn. he is preparing himself for the wild. we will be re-introducing him into the sanctuary where he was found this year. video by @katie.rowe @nrt_kenya @tusk_org @glassybaby @conservationorg @sandiegozoo @natgeo @sararacamp #bekindtorhinos #dontletthemdisappear #rhinos #saverhinos #stoppoaching #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa

Baby solar is only a few days old, but he’s already a pro at splashing, mud bathing, and lounging. swipe through and see for yourself! • solar is the first calf of seraa (an wild-living orphan who we rescued in 2001) and the 29th dswt “grandcalf” (born to orphans who are now living wild) that we know of. we’re already smitten! • • • photos © david sheldrick wildlife trust #dswt #seraa #seraadswt #solar #solardswt #voi #voireintegrationunit #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #worthmorealive #antipoaching #ivorybelongstoelephants #bekindtoelephants

Snares are as indiscriminate as they are cruel. a few weeks ago, we rushed to the rescue of a zebra foal who had gotten her leg stuck in one; most recently, we helped an elephant who had a snare slicing into her neck. our dswt/kws mobile veterinary unit flew to the scene, darting the patient from the air and then moving in to remove the snare and treat her wounds. we’re happy to report that, thanks to this timely intervention, she will make a full recovery! #dswtfieldsuccessstories • over the past five years, our dswt/kws mobile veterinary units have treated over 1,000 elephants — and these life-saving efforts wouldn’t be possible without your support. to donate, visit: www.thedswt.org/donate • • • photos © david sheldrick wildlife trust #dswt @kenyawildlifeservice @biglifeafrica #dswtmobilevetunit #mobilevets #dswtantipoaching #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #worthmorealive #antipoaching #bekindtoelephants #savetheelephants #wildliferescue #dswtfieldsuccessstories

No two days are the same for our dswt/kws de-snaring units, but every day they’re working towards the same goal: to make kenya a safer place for its wild inhabitants. they spend long stints in the field, patrolling for illegal activity and deterring would-be wildlife offenders. our ten units based in tsavo national park (the largest national park in the country) act as guardians of its the wild residents and its fragile ecosystem. swipe through to see scenes from a typical patrol! • • • photos © david sheldrick wildlife trust / freya dowson #dswt @kenyawildlifeservice #tsavo #tsavonationalpark #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #worthmorealive #antipoaching #bekindtoelephants #savetheelephants #wildliferescue #dswtfieldsuccessstories

Embu is only five years old, but already she’s embarked on some big adventures in her life! this #dswttransformationtuesday, discover a few of them. • photo 1: in july 2014, a young elephant had been sporadically spotted wandering alone on the slopes of mount kenya. although she was clearly too young to be without her mother and was suffering the effects of that, we knew that a rescue would be challenging given the mountainous environment. luckily, the stars aligned on our first attempt and we were able to bring the starving 18-month-old to the nursery. • photo 2: although embu was always a source of comfort for the younger babies at the nursery — particularly little dupotto — she had a very real fear of her own: thunderstorms. whenever one rolled through nairobi, she would kick up a big fuss and start shouting! • photo 3: in 2015, embu graduated to our voi reintegration unit alongside her friends elkerama and suswa. she settled right in, enjoying the attention from the older orphans and exploring the new terrain in tsavo. • photo 4: embu created quite a stir in june of 2016. although she had been making great strides towards a life in the wild, she was still milk-dependent and relied on the guidance and protection of her keepers. one day, however, she seemed to forget this fact — she became rather besotted by a wild herd and, very boldly (and much to our dismay!), wandered off with them instead of returning with the dependent orphans. we immediately mounted a search on the ground and in the air, but it took several days to retrieve the wayward elephant. • photo 5: after that unexpected adventure, embu has been sticking closer to home. when she’s ready, she will fully transition to a life in the wild, but until that day comes we will provide her with all the support, love, and guidance that she needs to flourish. • your support helps us give orphaned elephants like embu a future. to foster her or another elephant in our care, click the link in our bio or visit: www.thedswt.org/foster • • • photos © david sheldrick wildlife trust #dswt #embu #embudswt #bekindtoelephants #whyilovekenya #savetheelephants #transformationtuesday
