The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

With the prodigious number of attacks on wild elephants for ivory ever on the increase, it has become vital to protect the remaining number of wild elephants, which currently stand at 35,000 wild Asian elephants, 450,000 Wild African Elephants, safe from poachers.

Groups of ruthless poachers endeavour to kill as many elephants as they can, daily, to salvage their precious ivory to sell overseas. An elephant's tusk is made of pure ivory, which can be sold to consumers, mostly in Asia to carve jewellery, and ornaments. The selling of this ivory is illegal and has been banned yet poachers still maintain their cruel mindsets and continue on killing. This extermination of elephants can leave behind many baby eles, without mothers or fathers, to fend for themselves. This is when the David Sheldrick Trust comes in like angels from heaven.
