The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Staff at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust lead young elephants through the forest.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces measures needed for the welfare, protection and conservation of wildlife and habitats in Kenya by rescuing and hand-rearing orphaned animals so that they can return to the wild when grown, with a particular focus on elephant and rhinos. The Trust also educates communities about the value of wildlife and environmental protection and campaigns against the abuse of wild animals in captivity.

British Airways crew regularly volunteer to take over milk to the orphan elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and we have also provided onboard blankets to protect the baby elephants from the harsh sun.
