Rescue Mission: Urgent Treatment Saves Majestic Elephant from Spear Wounds

The recent Conference of the Parties by CITES brought about significant victories for elephant conservation, including a near-total ban on wild elephant exports and the rejection of ivory stockpile sales.

These measures underscore the importance of family for elephants, who experience profound grief when separated.

As we applaud these wins, we also celebrate a new addition to our elephant family: the birth of baby Lili on September 1.

For our orphaned elephants, Lili’s arrival holds special significance, symbolizing the completion of a chapter and the start of a new one—living wild and free with their kin.

The birth brings boundless joy to the herd and those who have worked tirelessly to protect and rehabilitate these incredible creatures.

The prospect of a remarkable baby boom is on the horizon, with numerous wild grandkids anticipated in the coming years.

The resilience of our orphaned elephants, who have overcome adversity to embark on the extraordinary journey of motherhood, fills us with pride and joy.

Daphne’s words resonate as we witness the circle of life unfolding among the elephants we’ve rescued, nurtured, and reintegrated into their natural habitat.

These gentle giants, now living freely in the wild, still consider us a vital part of their family, returning to our sanctuaries to share the joy of their newborns.

In the world of African elephants, family is paramount. The entire herd plays a role in raising a new calf, highlighting the devastating impact when orphans lose their families due to poaching, human-wildlife conflicts, or climate change.

Our sanctuary’s role in rescuing and caring for these creatures is a testament to their strength and resilience.

The success stories of elephants like Emily, raised in our Voi Reintegration Unit, exemplify the transformative journey from vulnerability to thriving in the wild.

Emily, now a matriarch, gave birth to Eve and Emma, showcasing the enduring impact of our efforts.

Our Ithumba Reintegration Unit has also witnessed numerous births, with Head Keeper Benjamin acting as a “midwife” to ensure the well-being of the newborns. Like Nusu and Wiva, each addition tells a story of resilience and community support.

The recent birth of Lili to Loijuk, once a victim of severe drought, is a testament to the exceptional maternal instincts that flourish among these elephants.

The involvement of wild bull elephants in protecting newborn calves further emphasizes the interconnectedness of these majestic creatures.

Despite challenges, the interactions between wild-born babies and our orphaned elephants contribute to the foundation of maternal instincts, offering a glimpse into the future where these orphans become loving, nurturing mothers.

Reflecting on these moments, we are reminded of the transformative impact of saving just one elephant.

Wendi’s enchanting interaction with playful babies under the celestial supermoon is a poignant example of the happiness and hope born from our commitment to elephant conservation.

Witnessing scenes like these reaffirms our dedication to protecting and preserving these incredible creatures.

The arrival of each new elephant is a celebration of life, a reminder of the magic that unfolds when we work together to ensure a brighter future for these majestic animals.
