Staff get ready to feed bottles to elephant calves as Dr. Steven Chege examines an orphan

At our partner, Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, calves are cared for around the clock until they can be safely reintroduced into a protected area of their native habitat.

Rescuing and Reintroducing


It's a World Elephant Day celebration as we share how your support saves the largest land animals on the planet. Despite their mammoth size, elephants are in danger of extinction due to poaching and habitat loss. Luckily they have friends like you! Tune in to hear how your support fuels our efforts and partnership in the field with Africa’s first community-run elephant orphanage to rescue, rehabilitate, and reintroduce orphaned and injured calves back into protected native habitats.

The health of wildlife is the health of us all, and it's never been more apparent that we are all connected.

The Importance of a One Health Approach in Light of COVID-19

Vultures & Hirola Antelope

You and these two unusual species have a lot in common. With just a few remaining, the hirola antelope is one of Earth’s most endangered animals. Their health and future depend on the people and animals that share their habitat. Meanwhile, vultures are the sanitation heroes of the savanna, cleaning up carcasses, keeping disease from spreading, and helping others stay healthy. In light of current events, it's more apparent than ever that we’re all connected to each other—and to wildlife—on the one planet we share. Join us to find out more about hirola and vultures, the issues they face, and how we’re all counting on each other for a healthier future.

Shifting Conflict to Conversation

Giraffes & Leopards

People, livestock, and wildlife live together on the savanna, and the futures of leopards and giraffes depend on us to find ways for everyone to peacefully coexist. We’re working with local teams to rescue injured animals, protect them through anti-poaching patrols, and develop innovative conservation methods so that everyone who shares this space can thrive. Discover how your support saves both the world’s tallest animal and one of its stealthiest!
