Juniper is taking a little break from fostering kittens but we are fostering a different baby animal - from afar this time! We hope that you will be as enamored by these adorable orphans as you are with the kittens that we care for! Baby elephants have the most playful and loving nature - with each other and around older elephants. Their silliness and posturing reminds us of kittens playing alone or with their older foster siblings. Our foster is Quanza who was rescued by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust after her mother and two sisters were killed by poachers. See photos and read about Quanza here.
The need to help elephants survive in the wild is dire. Humans are their biggest threat, due to poaching, but we are also their greatest hope for survival. Here is a petition to Say NO to ivory.
Other favorite organizations dedicated to saving wild elephants are the Big Life Foundation and Save the Elephants.
Maybe you will want to foster an elephant too!
