Adopt an orphan
Adopt an orphan elephant or rhino for yourself or as a gift for a loved one - offering life and hope to an animal in need. Your donation will be directed towards the rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned animals and the protection of elephants and other animals in the wild.
The first children's book published by the SWT. 'Garzi the Orphan' brings to life the story of a real-life orphaned elephant rescued by the SWT. The story of brave Garzi and friends highlights the threats faced by African elephants and the work of the Sheldrick Trust to protect the species.
Our free resources offer schools, teachers, home educators and children the opportunity to learn about African elephants and the work of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, as well as empowering children with ways to get involved and help secure the future of elephants and their wild friends.
At the heart of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s conservation activities is the Orphans’ Project, which has achieved world-wide acclaim through its hugely successful elephant rescue and rehabilitation program.
Our rescued elephants are orphaned for a variety of different reasons. These include poaching, severe droughts, human-wildlife conflict over space and food and habitat loss due to human infrastructure development.
