Photo by Ami Vitale @amivitale | A wild elephant herd passes through an area called Loijuk, near Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in northern Kenya. Before @r.e.s.c.ue was founded, orphaned elephants had to be transported 240 miles away, and they would be reintroduced in Tsavo National Park, in Kenya's south. There was no chance they would ever encounter their kin again. One of the great benefits @r.e.s.c.u.e offers is that now these elephant calves are raised near where they were rescued and may be able to return to the same herds they were originally separated from.
