I have some amazing friends in amazing places doing some amazing things! if you haven't heard of them already please check them out @r.e.s.c.u.e Mike Learka he is a proud keeper at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary. He is part of a team of keepers all from his local community, they are an example to other communities on how to live in harmony with wildlife. Pokot the elephant calf, an orphan through drought will one day be back in the wild walking the migratory routes that his family have walked for centuries. Until then, Mike will look after him.

I've stood in this spot in #kenya & watched a big bull #elephant drink from this pool. Life changing. Please do it too! #Repost @sararacamp (@get_repost)

If it's been one of those days.... Sit back, relax and cover yourself in mud!
This is Loijipu, a black rhino who was very sadly abandoned by his mother at just 3 days old. He is getting a body rub from his keeper John, who has become a leading expert in hand rearing rhino. Loijipu couldn't be in better hands, and one day he will be heading back to Sera conservancy which is where his mother still lives! #northkenya #natureisspeaking #retetielephants #bethechange @kenyawildlifeservice @nrt_kenya

Photo by @amivitale. After Samburu warriors discovered two-week old elephant Kinya stuck in a well, they called in wildlife keepers from Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya. The rangers waited overnight with the baby in the hope that her family may return to find her, but eventually transported her to Reteti for safekeeping.

Video by @amivitale. A mother elephant with her baby near Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife) in Kenya. Lewa is a model for sustainable conservation in the region and is home to several hundred elephants, depending on the time of year and migration. Elephant populations in the area are threatened by poaching but also drought and environmental conditions. While orphaned elephants discovered by the community used to be transported hundreds of miles away to Kenya's only elephant orphanage near Nairobi, now nearby Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) can rehabilitate baby elephants in order to reunite them with their wild herds.

Gözler her şeyi söylüyor zaten, fazla söze gerek yok. ・・・
Photo by @amivitale. Suyian was the first elephant rescued by the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya. Reteti is part of the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy and is the first community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. The Matthews Range where Namunyak is situated is home to Africa's second-largest elephant population. Community-based wildlife keepers there are working to rehabilitate abandoned and orphaned elephants in order to eventually return them to the nearby wild herds.
In this sense, community based conservation is likely to be the only viable alternative for vast tracts of Africa, in the parts beyond agriculture and where big animals and nomadic pastoralists still make their home. This elephant sanctuary is the culmination of a two-decades long process of tipping conservation upon its head, protecting wildlife for, and not just from, people. In that sense the sanctuary is as much about people as it’s about elephants. The elephants and this initiative need your support. You can help by following or donating!

Shaba sniffs out her coming meal, a special formula that replaces mother’s milk and is given to the babies every three hours around the clock at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya.
