Why I support SWT

  • Why I support SWT….

    Who wouldn’t want to donate to saving orphaned baby elephants?

     This is part of the work that the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust do but there’s so much more to their work than that simple sentence says.  A baby elephant can be orphaned due to drought, to poachers, to an attack by a predator and through human elephant conflict.  There are many ways that a baby elephant can become an orphan but there’s one sure outcome - a traumatised animal.  In taking in a baby elephant, the Sheldrick Trust are ensuring a minimum of 10 years care within an adopted herd of elephants with the overarching aim to provide a wild life for that baby when it is grown.

     That takes a lot of money.
