Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT)

The sight of the tiny elephant orphans trotting out from their enclosures every morning at Kenya’s Sheldrick Trust swathed in their colorful Swahili blankets is a poignant reminder of the casualties in man’s destructive nature. Located in Kenya, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT) is the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and a pioneering conservation organization for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.

Founded in 1977 by Dame Daphne Sheldrick in memory of her late husband, David Sheldrick MBE, the famous naturalist and founding warden of Tsavo East National Park, the remarkable work of the trust continues today under the auspices of Angela Sheldrick (Daphne and David’s daughter) and her inspiring team. By embracing all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife including anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need and safe-guarding the natural environment, The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s passion to make a difference is beyond inspiring.
