Photo by @amivitale for @natgeo. Wildlife keepers, recruited from the local community in Northern Kenya, take rescued baby elephants on a hike near Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ). In the past the local people weren’t much interested in trying to save elephants. A rescued calf had to be transported to Kenya’s only orphanage, some 240 miles away, near Nairobi. If successfully rehabilitated, the youngster would have to be released into Tsavo National Park, with no hope of reunification with its original herd way to the north. But now, with Reteti, elephant orphans, like two-year-old Shaba, the oldest resident, can be returned to their home ground, where they’ll have a good chance of reconnecting with their relatives. Shaba should be ready to take those steps after about eight months. @sararacamp @nrt_kenya @lewa_wildlife @conservationorg @tusk_org @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nikonusa @nature_africa #elephant #saveelephants #retetielephants #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #nikond5s #photojournalism #amivitale
