January Cause - Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was established more than 40 years ago and is best known for its Orphans' Project, the first and most successful elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. The Sheldrick Trust is a pioneering conservation organisation, dedicated to the protection of wildlife and the preservation of habitats in East Africa.

The orphans projects rescues baby elephants that were orphaned due do human-wildlife conflict or natural causes. They then get rehabilitated and nurtured until they can go back to the wild. more than 250 orphans returned to the wild successfully and even had their own babies - 38 so far!

This January, Elephant Hug will donate 20% of our profits to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. You can learn more and donate yourself at:
