So sad Sad poor little one. I wonder if his mother was a poaching victim. I always have to think that when he died he wasn't alone and scared but surrounded by love! I don't know how the keepers do it. Too many sad stories!

I Agree Anne-Marie - every day such tragic stories, but at least he didn't die alone, hungry and suffering. To be a keeper must at time be such a rewarding job and at times so sad. I admire them all so much.

WOW I thought he looked tall on the other thread you posted Lai, but up against the baby Elle he looks massive. As I said on there lets hope he can help change the mindset of Chinas youth towards animals.
How lovely that Turkwel and Tano have become such good friends, but such a shame that so many babys have to be cared for by DSWT becuase of poaching, and spearings

iWorry is a campaign by The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
The DSWT is a front-line organisation working every day in the field to protect Africa’s wildlife and habitats. We are not traditionally a campaigning organisation, but the severity of the danger caused by the escalating ivory trade will only be countered if we all stand up for elephants together.

At the DSWT we love elephants and we can’t imagine a world without them, but if we don’t all come together to stand up for elephants and add our voice to those fighting against the ivory trade, the African elephant species could be lost forever.

As long as there is a market for ivory, elephants will be cruelly killed for their tusks. We want everyone who loves elephants to Say No to Ivory and stand up for elephants.

The DSWT iWorry campaign aims to raise awareness of the urgent need to stop all trade in ivory internationally, in order to protect the future of elephants.

I was'nt sure if it had been on before, but I though it was worth advertising on the Home Page anyway as our Elle's need all the support they can get, and hopefully the visitors we get will sign as well

iWorry - Say NO to ivory

http://www.iworry.org/

Last year up to 36,000 elephants were killed for their ivory. 1 life lost every 15 minutes.
At the current rate of poaching African Elephants could face extinction in the wild by 2025.

Join us as we peacefully march in 15 cities around the world on Friday 4th October.
You can also show your support by joining the digital march for elephants.

Support the DSWT's iworry campaign and be a part of a global effort to protect and preserve elephants


I am sure you've all seen this before but it is worth mentioning again.

Thanks Lai, I got an email through from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust about this. Great idea and hopefully it will be well supported. Wise decision to cancel the one in Nairobi given the events of the past week.
