"It’s a record that sounds like it was made yesterday. It’s as hip as anything on the planet, It’s the accumulation of everything that … modern jazz is about.I have given away hundreds of copies to kids all over the world and said, ‘I want you to treat this like orange juice, listening to it every morning.’"

-Quincy Jones

nubbsgalorephotos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

Humans, they are scum of the Universe but at the same time they can be light and beauty.

I sponsor multiple elephants, and suggest further sponsorships instead of a present each Christmas/birthday.

The stories of these poor creatures breaks my heart. Help out. Sponsor. Be part of what’s right in this world.
