The Problem

It can sometimes be easy to feel discouraged and disheartened by the news. We might feel like one person can not make a difference. We might hear more sad stories then happy ones. The orphaned elephants of Kenya all have sad stories, but thanks to one woman (and those who worked with her along the way) these elephants survive and their stories have happy endings.

Our Plan

We will learn about Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and the stories of their little charges. In honor of Dame Daphne Sheldrick\'s birthday, we will celebrate the life of one woman and the major impact she had on elephant conservation and protection. We will learn about elephants through a presentation and then watch the Imax movie Born to be Wild! We will speak up for elephants and celebrate the successes of Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (and the individuals that create this impact)! Happy Birthday Daphne!
