SHUKURU LGIT'S BABY ELEPHANT
A tiny newborn elephant is orphaned, often its mother and family gunned down to serve the Ivory trade, its life support gone; any survivors fleeing in terror; its fate now suffering and death in hopeless and lonely isolation it cannot understand.
For an elephant, the family is all important; its very existence dependent upon its mother's milk for the first two years of life and a life that should span three score years and ten, equivalent to that of man.
In a perfect world that elephant life would be filled with fun and joy through the companionship of friends and a close-knit and loving family, whose love is pure and unconditional all the days of its life.
In one country in Africa, Kenya, an Elephant Nursery situated in Nairobi for the first time ever now offers hope for any orphaned elephant fortunate enough to be found alive
