Protecting Our Home

Narrated by Angela Sheldrick, this film is an ode to the legacy we have created over the last 45 years: Protecting habitats and providing a family for creatures that have lost their own.

We embrace all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife including anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness and providing veterinary assistance to animals in need.
