Wildlife keeper Dorothy works as nutritionist feeding the baby elephants at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary ( @r.e.s.c.u.e
) in Northern Kenya, the subject of a story I am very excited to share this week for National Geographic. "Before I was afraid of wild animals, especially elephants, but now I see them differently," she told me. "The sanctuary has changed my feelings about elephants. And they are helping our own children to become healthier too. Our culture from Samburu is being promoted." Follow Reteti Elephant Sanctuary ( @r.e.s.c.u.e
) and help the local Samburu community save what is left. What’s happening here at Reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way Samburus relate to wild animals they have long feared.
Follow all of us, @r.e.s.c.u.e
