Challenge

Reteti is home to the first community owned elephant orphanage in Africa. Designed to rescue and release orphaned and abandoned elephant calves, whilst creating much needed benefits to the Samburu people that live alongside them, the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is the representation of communities standing up united for wildlife, in recognition of their inherent value. Silent Heroes will visit the Sanctuary in October to hand deliver supplies. Thank you for being a Silent Hero!

Solution

We are seeking funding to purchase veterinary and critical care nursing supplies for orphaned calves. Silent Heroes will hand deliver these supplies in October 2018. Photos kindly provided by Reteti Elephant Sanctuary with photo credit to Leaving the Frame.

Long-Term Impact

The Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is situated in the remote Mathews Range, among Kenya's second largest elephant population. It takes in orphaned and abandoned elephant calves with an aim to release them back into the wild herds adjoining the Sanctuary. This is the result of a widely recognised and expanding grassroots movement of community-driven conservation across northern Kenya; a movement that is growing new economies, transforming lives and conserving natural resources.
