National Geographic has made a fascinating video about Daphne Sheldrick’s elephant orphanage, which takes care of young orphaned elephants until they are ready to be re-released into the wild. The Nairobi orphanage is a favorite destination among Ujuzi safari goers to Kenya. I had the opportunity to visit it in person last year and it was truly a life-changing experience to see these gentle youngsters – some as tall as me! – learn to eat and socialize together.
