nubbsgalore: photos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.
when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”
approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.
cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

Can I just get a hell yeah for the fact that Grease literally took the femininity associated with the colour pink and destroyed it with Rizzo. Is Riz a Pink Lady, with the silk jacket and everything? Yes. Does she wear lipstick like a fierce bitch? Yes. Does she have that “I don’t give a fuck” attitude that strikes fear into the hearts of men as they know they wouldn’t be able to handle how badass she is? Hell yes. Does she still get emotional and show that it’s okay to feel upset at things in life? You betcha!
Riz wears pink and heels and is 100% not afraid to whoop your ass in a bitch match. Girly girl my ass. She’s tougher than the T-Birds and she is damn proud.
