“Orphaned elephants are looked after around the clock at the David Sheldrick Elephant Orpanage, Nairobi, Kenya.
Elephants who lose their family are often hard to care for. They often die of a broken heart. At the orphanage they have devised a system of care which involves sleeping, eating and being with the young elephants all the time. This gives them a much greater chance of survival. The carers find it hard not to get attached to the baby elephants who are constantly craving attention.” Jan 11, 2009
Exhibit at Royal National Theatre, London.
