Sheldrick elephant orphanage
Visit to Sheldrick elephant orphanage was heartbreaking for me. To see those baby elephants without parents and to learn about hard work in saving them was too much to take. People kill elephants for ivory on a grand scale, now using machine guns and poisoning lakes. Baby elephants experience such stress, they rarely survive without help. Orphanage workers have to sleep with baby elephants in their sheds in order to calm them down. Throughout the years orphanage has helped about 800 baby elephants. Much more elephants been killed every year. It's a lost war. In 10 years time there will be no elephants left in Africa. to learn more about how to help, visit this website http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/This photo was shot on film.
