Adopting Orphan Elephants
At the orphanage, the baby elephants are allowed to heal and grow. "They're playing in the mud bath," Kristin says. "They love that."
The best thing about The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Kristin says, is that all of the elephants are eventually reintroduced back into the wild. "We've released 100 elephants, living 100 percent back in the wild," Kristin says. After developing such strong bonds with their keepers, however, Kristin says the elephants sometimes return to visit. "If they have a baby, they'll come back to show the baby to their keepers," she says.
