We have unending respect for the work that @DSWT is doing to support and rehabilitate orphaned elephants. Find out more through the link in our bio πŸ‡°πŸ‡ͺ #giraffemanor #discoverthesafaricollection #kenya #whyilovekenya #safari #luxurytravel πŸ“·: @arojasmaldonado
Feeding time at the elephant orphanage β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € This little elephant is an orphan. Along with many other orphaned infant elephants, he has been rescued by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, where I was lucky enough to encounter him. His mother and family were most likely killed by poachers for their ivory, leaving him alone, traumatised and grieving. Baby elephants are fully dependent on their mother's milk for the first two years of life and continue weaning until the age of four, so DSWT have developed a special milk formula to feed the orphans every three hours and their keepers stay with them twenty-four hours a day, even sleeping with the elephants during the night. DSWT takes in orphan elephants from all over Kenya and raises them until they can be released into the herds of Tsavo National Park and reintegrated back into the wild. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € You can find out more about the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @DSWT β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € #dswt #dswtnursery #babyelephant #savetheelephants #bekindtoelephants #elephant #elephants #africanelephant #africanelephants #elephantsafari #africanwildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #nature #naturepic #naturephotos #conserve #conservationphotography #stoppoaching #endangeredspecies #protectwildlife #savewildlife #worthmorealive #jointheherd #nairobi #nairobinationalpark #kenya #eastafrica #🐘
March of the gentle giants β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Elephants are the world’s largest and most majestic land mammals. Their name comes from the Greek word ‘elephas’ which means ‘ivory’, but due to illegal ivory poaching there are only two main species of elephant left on the planet: The African Elephant and the Asian Elephant. The Asian Elephant is now an endangered species and the African Elephant is considered vulnerable. Without urgent action to save them, elephants could disappear from the wild within a single generation. We must act to save them now, before it is too late. To do this we have to start with education and knowledge. Without that, the children of the future will only remember elephants as the dinosaurs of the 21st century. #savetheelephants β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € #elephant #elephants #africanelephant #africanelephants #asianelephant #elephantsafari #safari #africanwildlife #savannah #wildlifephotography #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #nature #naturepic #naturephotos #conserve #conservationphotography #stoppoaching #endangeredspecies #worthmorealive #protectwildlife #savewildlife #actnow #amboselinationalpark #amboseli #riftvalley #kenya #eastafrica #🐘 @savetheelephants
The combination of open areas punctuated by huge baobabs is a particularly beautiful feature of parts of Tanzania.. #treesofinstagram #treesofafrica #baobabs #ruahanationalpark #giraffe #africanwildlife
Happy World Biodiversity Day! . Maintaining biodiversity means sustaining healthy ecosystems and doing your part to help make the world a better place. . There are an estimated 11 million species inhabiting the Earth today! Since the rate of extinction has increased, many extant species may become extinct before they are even described.
