Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is situated in the remote Matthews range, Northern Kenya. It takes in orphaned and abandoned elephant calves with the aim of one day releasing them back into the wild herds surrounding the sanctuary. The keepers are all from local Samburu villages and look after the calves 24/7. The sanctuary is a good example of the expanding grassroots movement of community driven conservation across northern Kenya. . . . . #elephant#conservation#retetielephants#community#wildlife#africa#kenya#samburu#saveelephants#stoppoaching#filmmaking#photography#documentary#travel#travelphotography#videographer#lumix#gh5#canon#natgeo@wayfairertravel

Still thinking about elephants and one of my favourite places on earth - Reteti
Still thinking about elephants and one of my favourite places on earth - Reteti Elephant Sanctuary in Northern Kenya. Fab community owned and run Sanctuary - actually the first community owned and run animal sanctuary in Africa. @r.e.s.c.u.e - such wonderful work, such wonderful care - and so obvious how much everyone loves their “job”. Time for a return me thinks - wonder if they’d notice a stowaway ... 💞🐘💞 . .

Our partners at the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary just welcomed a young elephant named Sarara into the family!🐘 She is four months old and was separated from her mother when she got sick and couldn’t keep up with the herd — oftentimes the group needs to keep moving to ensure survival and access to resources. She is named Sarara because her rescuers found her in Sarara, Sera Conservancy. The older elephants at Reteti enjoy showing her the ropes and passing down elephant knowledge. - - #marchtothetop#elephant#conservation#kenya#africa#retetielephants

This is Loijipu, a rescued black rhino calf that’s being reintroduced to life in the wild in Sera Conservancy, Kenya. Aged nearly two, he was found abandoned at only two days old and thanks to the amazing efforts of the Reteti sanctuary in nearby Namunyak he’s now a happy, healthy youngster, full of personality and keeping his ranger guardians on their toes!

The flowing reds behind the ivory whites
(#graphite #art on A6 paper)

Poachers
The flowing reds behind the ivory whites (#graphite#art on A6 paper) Poachers are killing 40k #elephants a year and with a global #elephant population of just around 400k, it does not take a mathematician to figure out that there is an urgent need to stop the killing. Ivory was and is still being used in making piano keys and other exotic items. The supply, as usual, is fuelled by demand. Cut the demand and the supply is reduced. Well, this is easier said than done. #china , #hongkong and #japan are currently the major markets for ivory. The issue is that not all end consumers are aware and concerned about the many magnificent gentle giants being sprayed with bullets for their tusks. It's Blood Ivory here! Add to it the curruption that is omnipresent in any political system. #cites (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) had failed miserably in an attempted control of the ivory trade in the year 1989. However the 1990 ivory ban and the publicity of ivory trade as being harmful to the elephant population worked well. Ivory prices plummeted and ivory markets around the world closed, almost all of which were in #europe and #america. But #southafrica and #zimbabwe went against the ban as they suggested that they needed revenue from ivory sales to fund conservation! These countries continue to attempt to sell ivory through their declared #legal systems where they sell their stockpile of ivory in a one-off sale that happens every five to eight years. Supported by curruption, economic and political interests, such legal trade also drives the illegal ivory trade. It's the beginning of the end, unless something is done. People should realize the value of elephants beyond their tusks. The tusks belong to elephants and it's only they who need them the most. Thanks to @realstoriesdocs , @unreportedc4 , @vice , #retetielephants for the inspiration. Let's think of ways to choke poachers' pipelines. #artist#artistonistagram#artistsoninstagram#artwork#draw#drawing#drawings#sketch#sketching#pencil#pencildrawing#pencildrawings#pencilsketch#graphiteartist#worldofartists#politics

Video by @fatihturk2122 Happy 2nd Anniversary Reteti! To celebrate, mud hole fun
Video by @fatihturk2122 Happy 2nd Anniversary Reteti! To celebrate, mud hole fun for everyone. Here, Shaba tries to playfully squish Nadasoit. Nadasoit arrived at Reteti when she was only 2-weeks-old. As she began to get stronger, she became one of the first orphans that proxy matriach Shaba took under her wing. Shaba was constantly with Nadasoit and Nadasoit was constantly with Shaba. Today, now that Nadasoit's a big strong 2-year-old elephant, she's adopted the nurturing traits of Shaba, and both constantly care for and help those younger than they are. It has been an amazing privilege to witness Nadasoit's transformation, the transformation of Shaba and Nadasoit's relationship and the transformation of Reteti as it has gone from being a tiny refuge for orphaned and abandoned elephant calves to a world renowned facility that has helped rescue and nurture more than 34 elephant calves while drving the growth of all important community based conservation throughout northern Kenya in just two short years. Thank you for following along on this journey and supporting Reteti every step of the way.

Samburu Lands.
Two Morans (Samburu warriors) look out across the Matthews Range
Samburu Lands. Two Morans (Samburu warriors) look out across the Matthews Range in Northern Kenya. The Samburu have coexisted with the land for hundreds of years and even today still lead a semi-nomadic lifestyle. In a fast developing continent where space is premium their link to the land is tested again and again. Coexistence with nature has always been an extremely important part of their way of life, however with Reteti Elephant Orphanage that relationship takes on a whole new role. Recognising the importance of protecting the elephants that live alongside them, the Samburu set up the sanctuary. Community owned and solely staffed by Samburu, Reteti is the first ever community run elephant orphanage in Africa paving the way for the ever-growing movement of community focused conservation. This initiative and many more is supported by #tofautifoundation set up by @im_crista_cullen 🎥to come with @clarebalding . . . #samburu#kenya#retetielephants#elephants#elephant#savetheelephants#tofautifoundation#cristacullen#clarebalding#photography#naturephotography#canon#wildlifephotography#video#videographer#adventure#nature#outdoors#adventuretravel#filmmaker#documentary#wildlife#animals#animalphotography#wildlifefilmmaker#conservation#wildlifeconservation

Rp @amivitale ・・・ Video by @amivitale. A little slurpy, a little slobbery, but very satisfying. Lemorijo gets his afternoon bottle from Matiba. The rapidly growing orphaned baby elephants are fed two liter bottles of special formula every three hours, 24-hours per day. That means Lemorijo, in the more than 8 months he's been at Reteti, has drunk more than 2,000 bottles of milk. Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), in northern Kenya is 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. @conservationorg@nrt_kenya@tusk_org@kenyawildlifeservice@natgeo@natgeocreative@thephotosociety@nikonusa@nature_africa@magicalkenya@synology.official@sandiegozoo#elephant#saveelephants#retetielephants#stoppoaching#kenya#northernkenya#magicalkenya#whyilovekenya#africa#everydayafrica#nikonusa#nikonlove#nikonnofilter#nikonambassadors#photojournalism#amivitale

Photo by @amivitale. Bawa puts his trunk in Sosian's mouth. It's a gesture that is reassuring and comforting, like a hug or a handshake for humans. Both elephants are residents of the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community owned and operated elephant sanctuary in Africa. When little Bawa arrived, the veterinarian was convinced he would die. He was emaciated, dehydrated and scared. However, what the doctor wasn’t able to measure in the examination was Bawa’s fighting spirit, which helped him beat the odds and his big character, which has endeared him to everyone at Reteti, animal and human alike. Undeterred by the doctor’s appraisal, the dedicated team lept into action to save Bawa. They worked non-stop for 48 hours, never leaving this baby elephant’s side.  It took many weeks of dedicated work. Even the elephants joined the effort. Once Bawa was strong enough to begin joining the herd out on walks, Shaba took him under her wing. Bawa was never without Shaba and Shaba was never without Bawa. Today, Bawa is a strong, healthy, big boy who loves to play with Pokot in the mud hole, where they like to tumble and pile on one another.

Después de que su madre fuese asesinada por cazadores furtivos, Shaba fue llevada al Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@rescue) en 2016. Inicialmente desconfiada de los guardianes, Shaba ahora es una parte instrumental del santuario, ayudando a mantener el orden, enseñando a los jóvenes el día a día . Senderos empinados y visitando a los nuevos huérfanos con un sincero y emotivo hola. Shaba guía a sus compañeros elefantes mientras se adaptan a la vida en el santuario, además de ayudar a enseñar a los cuidadores a cuidar mejor de sus cargos. Reteti Elephant Sanctuary ( r.e.s.c.u.e) es el primer santuario de elefantes de propiedad y gestión de la comunidad en África.

Their trunks are comprised of over 44,000 muscles and used for eating, drinking, as snorkels and for reassuring other elephants. These sentient giants are nature’s greatest engineers.

When I heard from my sister that @saint_ronans school in Kent were fundraising to help save orphan elephants in Kenya, I was delighted to help them with this donated print ‘Orphan Ellie’ to help with the cause. My nieces and nephew all go to that school and I think it’s admirable that children so far removed from Africa and its wildlife feel inspired enough to do something about the difficulties facing our elephants today. Part of the money raised will go to @dswt to adopt one of their orphan babies and the other to @r.e.s.c.u.e who are a community run sanctuary based in Northern Kenya. Both these groups are doing fantastic work in elephant conservation, so well done Saint Ronan’s for looking beyond your borders and helping where it is much needed! #conservationartist#watercoloursbykaren#elephantconservation#wildlifeart#wildlife#elephant#babyelephants#davidsheldrickwildlifetrust#retetielephants#conservation#poaching#africa#saintronans#kent#schoolsinkent#onlyelephantsshouldwearivory#kidsforconservation#limitededition

Handmade bracelets designed to help save elephants. 🐘
. . .
With every purchase
Handmade bracelets designed to help save elephants. 🐘 . . . With every purchase of a Tembo Bracelet, you’re providing aid to @r.e.s.c.u.e. An elephant sanctuary in Northern Kenya, focused on rehabilitating orphaned elephants back into the wild. The orphans of Reteti have lost their mothers due to poaching, drought, or human-wildlife conflict. Reteti sanctuary provides their orphans with a second chance. Every elephant counts! 🌍 . . . Sadly an elephant is poached for its ivory every 15 minutes, somewhere in Africa. Help us on our mission to educate the world on what is happening to elephants. Join us on our journey to providing elephants with a brighter future. ✌🏽
