Sound on for the full experience of what I like to call heaven on Earth- @dswt ・・・
Join us for sunrise in Tsavo! Not only is this scene lovely, it’s also a sign of the remarkable progress that has been made for Kenya’s elephants. When we built our Ithumba Reintegration Unit in 2004, an elephant was a rare sight in Tsavo East; although they had once been plentiful in the area, poaching in the 70s and 80s had decimated their numbers. However, we were confident that as we introduced orphans into this elephant paradise, their wild friends would also return — and return they did! It began with a few lone elephant scouts, but soon the message spread within the wild elephant community and here we are today, with almost too many to count in this video.
Elephants are still faced with many grave threats to their survival, but by working closely with wildlife authorities and implementing protection projects that complement each other, we can save their lives and safeguard their futures. We hope you are as inspired by this scene as we are, for it is only through our supporters’ help that we can make this a reality. To become a part of the story, visit:
