For a number of months throughout 2010, spread between two separate trips, National Geographic Magazine editor at large, Michael Nichols, spent intimate time immersed in the Orphans Project, capturing exquisite images that encompass the essence of our work.  We are proud that this prestigious magazine will bring the plight of orphaned elephants, and elephants generally, to the attention of the global public. Charles Siebert writes the story. The results of many months are now shared with the world in National Geographic magazine’s September 2011 issue.
