Video by @amivitale. An adult elephant herd socializes on the #Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy. An elephant trunk is comprised of over 44,000 muscles and trunks are used for eating, drinking, as snorkels, for pushing, leading, “shaking hands” and reassuring other elephants. These sentient giants are nature’s great engineers. By voraciously eating the trees and brush, they keep the land open and grassy. Without the elephants, other wildlife, people and livestock all suffer. Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy is home to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. The sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild.

Today is giving Tuesday! There is no better day than today to lend your support to the most impactful projects across the globe that are working to counter irreversible damage to our amazing planet. Here, Samburu elder Lekupanai looks after two orphaned elephant named Lemorijo and Kapai who were orphaned due to the extreme pressure that us humans have placed on their habitat. @r.e.s.c.u.e is a truly remarkable initiative that has shown that when a community comes together, extraordinary things can happen for both nature and the people that live in it.

In the remote Samburu lands of northern Kenya, the families take their herds to
In the remote Samburu lands of northern Kenya, the families take their herds to the “singing wells”, where they dig in the dry river bed for water to fill up troughs for their cows and goats. Each family owns a well and they sing a particular song to their livestock as they bring water up. The animals recognize their family song and come down to their well to be watered. Many have walked 20 kilometres to reach here and with the hope of taking advantage of the water that circulates through the subsoil in times of drought, which are expected to be longer and more severe in the coming years. This is a very serious problem with very serious consequences, and this is not an isolated problem, but rather a global one. In fact, experts predict that droughts will become more habitual, longer and more severe. It is one of the causes of population displacements: every year about 20 million people are forced to move for climate-related reasons, but according to the Geneva Convention of 1951, they are not recognized as refugees. In the world there are more than two billion people who do not have access to drinking water. . . . #namunyak#samburu#dryriver#dryriverbed#dry#drought#waterhole#climatechange#climatechangeisreal#everydayclimatechange#globalwarming#climateaction#watercrisis#watershortage#nowaternolife#ecology#eastafrica#kenya#africageophoto#whyilovekenya#magicalkenya#worldshares#africanamazing#travelafrica#africageographic#aerialphoto#juanpablomoreiras#sequia#pozo

It breaks my heart that the need even exists for multiple baby elephant orphanages in Kenya but such is reality. This is another one close to our hearts. Watch one of the newcomers to @r.e.s.c.u.e be welcomed by a fellow orphan. 🐘❤️🙏 ・・・ This is the video of the very first moment our newest orphan Loisaba was introduced to the rest of the herd on Thursday. Nadasoit, his first friend, came barreling down the hill to meet Loisaba. They then began to intertwine trunks, like little children holding hands. The other elephants, followed, excited to see him and eager to get to know him. They followed Loisaba everywhere for the rest of the afternoon. Read our latest blog about how Loisaba came to live at Reteti on our website and follow @loisaba_conservancy who facilitated Loisaba’s rescue & was the inspiration for his name to learn more about their important work. #elephants#DontLetThemDisappear#saveelephants#retetielephants#northkenya#elephant#kenya#Namunyak#saveelephants@nrt_kenya@conservationorg@tusk_org@sararacamp@kenyawildlifeservice@sandiegozoo@natgeo#stoppoaching#bekindtoelephants#repost@r.e.s.c.u.e

#Nature, Primo Premio, #Stories © @amivitale , for @natgeo "Warriors Who Once Feared Elephants Now Protect Them" Mary Lengees, una delle prime guardiane al #retetielephants#Sanctuary Community United for #Elephants nel Nord del #Kenya, accarezza Suyian, il primo residente del Santuario, salvato nel 2016 quando era nato da appena quattro settimane. Le donne al Reteti sono viste come una grande risorsa nell'equipe. Al Reteti Elephant Sanctuary i cuccioli di #elefante orfani e abbandonati sono riabilitati e reinseriti nel proprio #habitat. Il Reteti è parte del #Namunyak#Wildlife Conservation Trust, nel cuore dell'antichissima patria del popolo #Samburu. L'orfanotrofio per #elefanti è stato creato nel 2016 proprio dai Samburu, e tutti gli uomini lì impiegati sono stati, o sono ancora, #guerrieri Samburu. In passato gli abitanti locali non avevano interesse nel salvare gli elefanti, che potevano costituire una minaccia per gli umani e le loro proprietà, ma ora la loro relazione con gli animali è completamente cambiata; gli elefanti si nutrono dei cespugli e abbattono piccoli alberi, aiutando la crescita dell'erba e avvantaggiando i pastori Samburu. Dal 14 settembre al 7 ottobre venite a scoprire tutte le storie e le immagini del #WorldPressPhotoPalermo#Exhibition 2018 a Palazzo Bonocore. #wpp18

I am thrilled to announce that a young Kenyan woman, Katie Rowe, who I nominated for the first Pritzker Emerging Environmental Genius Award is a finalist and tomorrow the winner will be announced by UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. The Pritzker Award is the first environmental award to single out innovators under the age of 40. It is created to be an early investment in our future, giving today’s top young minds the community and financial support that will take their ideas to the next level. I am honored to have Katie represent all the incredible people at Reteti's elephant Sanctuary (@duma_tanzania u.e) for this prestigious prize. #elephants#stoppoaching#DontLetThemDisappear#saveelephants#retetielephants#northkenya#elephant#kenya#Namunyak#saveelephants#africa#everydayafrica#photojournalism#amivitale#nikonusa#nikonlove#nikonnofilter#nikonambassador#nikond4s📸

Although elephant poaching in Africa continues at an alarming rate, since the opening of @r.e.s.c.u.e in the Mathews Range of northern Kenya the proportion of illegally killed elephants in member community conservancies has fallen 53 percent. This huge success is realized due to the love and dedication of the Samburu people, who care for Reteti Elephant Sanctuary’s abandoned elephants at Africa’s first community-owned elephant orphanage.

Regrann from @r.e.s.c.u.e - An adult elephant herd socializes on the #Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy. An elephant trunk is comprised of over 44,000 muscles and trunks are used for eating, drinkings, as snorkels, for pushing, leading, “shaking hands” and reassuring other elephants. These sentient giants are nature’s great engineers. By voraciously eating the trees and brush, they keep the land open and grassy. Without the elephants, other wildlife, people and livestock all suffer. Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy is our home. We are Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. We provide a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. You can support us and the people who protect wildlife. Make a $10 contribution in support of Reteti for a chance to win a trip to Kenya, see Dave Matthews in concert, take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by Dave and receive a @nikonusa D7500 18-300mm VR Lens Kit with @prizeo (Link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems).

The twelve elephants currently being cared for at @r.e.s.c.u.e were rescued from the nearby area around the #Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy. Though they come in frightened and vulnerable, the incredible staff here helps them thrive in hopes of returning them to the wild herds.

Located in the heart of the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in the remote Samburu lands of northern Kenya is @r.e.s.c.u.e, the first community-owned and managed elephant orphanage in Africa. Reteti is revolutionary in its community-driven conservation model, which is starting a grassroots movement of across northern Kenya, where female entrepreneurship and wildlife welfare go hand in hand. While you should support for these reasons, an added incentive of visiting is to see the local Samburu care for adorable elephants like this, a healthy calf that’s thriving thanks to the work of this dedicated team!
