Each year, an estimated 35,000 elephants are lost to poaching. In Africa alone, the elephant population has been reduced to less than half its size in 30 years as poachers seek to harvest their tusks to support illegal ivory trade. If unstopped, this rate could lead to extinction within the next 10 years. In Nairobi, Kenya, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (@dswt) has established the Orphan's Project. At their conservation refuge, volunteers take in and raise baby and adolescent elephants that have been orphaned after their parents have been poached. To date, the project has successfully recovered and raised over 150 orphaned elephants and reintroduced them successfully into the wild.
