Searching for Comfort

An original watercolour by Angela Sheldrick

Years ago we unlocked an unexpected trick with baby elephants to encourage them to feed: A hanging blanket gives them comfort and encourages feeding, with their little trunks able to rest up against the blanket while a bottle of milk is offered from under the blanket. For an elephant this feels like a very natural position, similar to resting up against mum's tum.
