Our Baby elephant fundraiser will run from today, Thursday, March 1, 2012 to Saturday, March 31, 2012. 
 
These are heart-breaking times for the African Elephants that we all love so much. Dame Daphne Sheldrick and her wonderful staff need our help to rescue as many precious baby elephants as they can. Thank you for your kindness, compassion and support.

“Elephants are long lived animals, and those foster-parents that have the staying power to continue their fostering commitment truly do help ensure the gift of life for a needy orphan of misfortune, making amends in a small way for the suffering inflicted on the Animal Kingdom by our species.” The David Sheldrick Trust Website
