Caregivers sleep with the young charges at night in the stables. Most of the rescued babies survive the traumas that left them orphaned and will start to be rehabilitated into Tsavo National Park in southeastern Kenya when they are about four.Raising baby elephants is not easy: they have complex emotional as well as dietary needs. It took a decade to perfect a milk formula that today is fed to the babies until they become more independent. At the Nairobi nursery they are fed every three hours, imbibing 24 litres a day.

Thank you Inda for sharing this information and the pictures.

Best known for our work to protect elephants, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT) operates the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. But we do much more than this.

We embrace all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife including anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness and providing veterinary assistance to animals in need.
