An ex orphan elephant plays in the mud in Ithumba, Tsavo East National Park, Kenya

From the series “Healing Elephants’ Grief” by Mia Collis

In Kenya, orphaned baby elephants are looked after at Daphne Sheldrick Orphanage in Nairobi. When they are older, they are transported to the remote Ithumba area in Tsavo East National Park where they are gradually integrated into the wild and ex orphan herds.
