Some pictures of the baby elephants in the care of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust that Birdies4Elephants has fostered. Most of them have graduated from the Nairobi nursery and are moved to some of the larger herds of elephants in the trusts care. There they learn to live as wild elephants and are slowly reintegrating into the wild. You can read more about these orphans on the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s website by clicking on their small pictures below.
