In awe and ecstacy: Elephants. We believe Elephants are heavenly creatures. Their character and pride humbles us. They are perfect, with character and pride. We love their stories and are happy to support those who take care of them. In the end, no one looks as good as our dirty dozen.

Emily (♀) was born around September 1993 in Tsavo-West National Park. She was only one month old when she came wandering with her herd in the direction of Tsavo-East. She fell into a pit latrine. Her herd was not able to help her out, staying agitated nearby. The rangers were alarmed by the behaviour and took the litte one in. Emily is our first baby and has grown into a true leader. She has her own herd since many years.
