The trust has been involved in a myriad of different activities to help conserve the wildlife. Most notable is its work with the elephant and rhino orphans, which Daphne Sheldrick over many years has dedicated her life to seeing that her husband's vision continues. With an incredible history, this Trust has had some real impact in the lives of elephants and rhinos, who would have normally just died due to human poaching and surrounding population conflict. Also, by supporting many different programs the Trust has had a great impact in conservation, rearing elephants and rhinos, and many worthwhile activities.
