Garzi the Orphan

Bring to life the story of Garzi in our first children’s book

Support our work and inspire young children with our fully illustrated children’s book. The story of brave Garzi and friends highlights the threats faced by African Elephants, including droughts caused by the climate crisis, habitat loss, ivory poaching and human-wildlife conflict, and the work of the Sheldrick Trust to protect the species and afford orphan elephants like Garzi a future.
