Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organizations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.
Having been a foster parent to three orphaned elephants, and been fortunate enough to visit DSWT on a recent trip to Kenya, I saw first hand the amazing work this organization does every day to care for their orphaned elephants, rhino and even ostrich. The caretakers work tirelessly with each orphan, including sleeping with them every night, feeding them milk on schedule, and taking them on daily nature walks preparing them for the reintegration process.
7% of the proceeds from your purchase will be donated to the U.S. Friends of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a U.S. based charity that provides financial support to the conservation programs of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya.

To date DSWT has successfully hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished its long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in their care.
