David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust & Giraffe Centre
David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a small flexible charity, established in memory of David Sheldrick, famous Naturalist and founder Warden of Kenya’s giant Tsavo East National Park in which he served from 1948 until 1976. Since its inception in 1977 the Trust has played an extremely significant and important role in Kenya’s conservation effort. Six Trustees assisted by an Advisory Committee of practical Naturalists with a lifetime experience of African conditions oversee and direct the operations of the Trust. The orphan elephants and rhinos are just some of the many wildlife commitments they are involved in. The Trust does not solicit funds and relies entirely on donations from our caring and compassionate friends and clients who visit the center on daily basis.
To date the Trust has successfully hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished its long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in their care.
The success of their Orphans’ Projects is due to the assistance of many organizations and individuals but particularly to the support of the Trust’s Fostering Programme. If you wish, you can foster one or more of the elephant orphans from as little as 0nly USD$50 per Orphan per year and you will be updated on a monthly newsletter of the Orphan you support.
AT Giraffe Centre, this is a rare opportunity of literary coming face to face with Africa’s tallest animal – the giraffe or even getting a kiss from the giraffe. Feed Daisy, the famous Rothschild giraffe and her family and learn about the success story of the once endangered Rothschild Giraffe. Entrance fee contributes to other conservation projects in Kenya.
