"The people that work at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, have extraordinary dedication to orphaned elephants and rhinos! Many of these orphans have been traumatized, after watching their parents killed. When they arrive, each orphan gets caretakers that stay with them 24/7, including sleeping with them. The loving keepers become substitute "parents", giving the babies the best possible chance of survival, and good mental health, and the best chance to return to the wild some day."
These cute and fun elephant-themed items are great gift ideas for anyone who loves elephants. They're the largest land animals in the world and have close family and social structures, so what's not to love? Today, September 22nd, is National Elephant Appreciation Day in the U.S., so be sure to read up on some of the world's foremost elephantconservation organizations. Consider supporting them or spreading the word about their efforts to protect these majestic creatures!
