THE STORY:

U.S. Friends of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust wrote -

DSWT is part of the Crowdrise Holiday Challenge! Help us raise needed funds to take care of the nursery orphans. 2013 has been a shocking year for elephants with more rescues than ever for the lucky ones that are found and make their way to The DSWT. 

The continued escalation in poaching elephants for their ivory has brought an unprecedented number of orphans to The DSWT nursery this year, bringing the current total nursery orphans in our care to 40. This is the greatest number we've ever cared for at the Nursery since we were established in 1977. Across all three units - Ithumba, Voi and the Nursery, we have over 79 elephants in our care!

Caring for this many orphans is very costly - the annual cost to care for one baby elephant is over $10,000 - so please join in and help us compete for the grand prize of the Crowdrise Holiday Challenge!
