We are so happy to tell you that today we have fostered a baby elephant called Sattao who is living in the Nairobi Nursery of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya!
We are now fostering this adorable, baby elephant bull for a year to come to participate in helping to provide him with all the care he will need while growing to be a wild elephant again and to live free in the vast plains of Kenya, where he belongs.
And we have done this with YOUR HELP, so thank you so much for your support!
With your help, we were able to donate to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and to foster Sattao, the baby elephant! 🐘 ❤️
We will be sharing a lot of his goings-on in the future, always when we are receiving his updates from the DSWT.
He's been born on the 10th of December 2016, so soon he will be 1 year old. When he was brought to the Nairobi Nursery of the DSWT he was only 3 months old.
And here is little Sattao – isn't he just adorable?! 🐘😍
DSWT Empowers New Beginnings
Sattao was rescued on the 18th of March 2017 from Tsavo East National Park and brought to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust's Nairobi Nursery.
He was found wandering abandoned and alone, weak, very thin and with injuries on his back legs. With the infamous Tsavo lions being plentiful in that area, it was a miracle that he was still alive.
Sattao was likely orphaned as a result of a human/wildlife conflict and it is possible that his mother was a victim of poaching.
But now he is safe and sound living in the Nairobi Nursery in the impeccable care of the Keepers of the DSWT.
Today he is the happy and playful, little elephant bull that he's supposed to be and is very much a part of the Nursery's herd!
Here is our fostering certificate:
We have also personally visited in the Nairobi Nursery already in 2015 and witnessed the remarkable work they do to help all the elephants in their care!
They truly give the gift of life to the animals!
