Once all of the orphans have returned from the forest, adopters are invited to walk around in the Nursery area, talk with the Keepers and meet the orphans at their stables, some of whom may be finishing their milk as you walk around. For the well-being of the elephants, it is only the Keepers that are allowed inside the elephant stables and only the Keepers that may bottle feed the elephants.
West Midland Safari Park | Award-Winning Day Out for Families
The visit, which finishes at 6pm, is a wonderful opportunity for our adopters to get a feel for the Nursery and see and be close to all the orphans. Firstly, caring for the orphans is a long term commitment and the keepers care for them as a temporary family and are with them for up to 10 years. Enabling local Kenyans the opportunity to play a part in the hand-raising of orphans helps create an affinity with the species and our keepers then share this conservation message with their families and communities, further spreading this essential conservation message.
Furthermore, paid or voluntary work in Kenya by foreigners requires a Work Permit, whilst walking in the bush brings with it an element of danger and, understandably, the government does not allow a foreigner to be exposed to this without armed escort.

The UK based Sheldrick Wildlife Trust welcomes volunteers to assist the charity in a variety of areas such as fundraising and outreach events, or administrative support at various times during the year.

When setting up a adoption you can choose to adopt for a minimum of 1 year, up to a maximum of 10 years. The orphans come from all corners of Kenya and from many different elephant populations, so they are given place or ethnic tribal names associated with the regions or in some cases a name pertinent to their rescue.
The commitment takes a team of trained care-givers who provide specialist care for the elephant until such time as it is ready to resume life in the wild.
The adoption funds go to all the elephants, as some orphans attract more adopters than others. Presently there are more than 80 milk and Keeper dependent orphans being cared for between the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust's four units. Keepers' Diaries are published mid-month and provide daily entries as written by our Keepers for the previous calendar month. This is because it is through their support that we are able to rescue and care for the orphaned elephants. In light of their commitment to the orphans, they have special access to the latest news on the orphans in their My Account.
If an adopter has chosen to receive our Orphans' Project communications, they will be emailed when the new Diaries are published.

The recipient can do so themselves via their own account, or they can directly request us to make the change for them. The reintegration process is one that can take up to ten years and varies for each individual, depending on what age it was when it was orphaned and how well it can recall its elephant family.
The orphans remain in our care as long as is necessary, until each orphan makes the decision to leave the Reintegration Centre and live independently of their human family. Ultimately, elephants need space, and the Greater Tsavo Conservation Area with over 64, square kilometres can provide the space an elephant needs for a quality life. Of course, having already invested so much into their care and wellbeing throughout the reintegration process, and with our goal to see them enjoying life in the wild, keeping the ex-orphans safe remains very much a priority.
Together with our Aerial Surveillance Unit, consisting of two Supercubs, a Topcub, a Cessna and a Hughes helicopter and an Eurocopter AS, all of which cover thousands of kilometres on patrol every month. Our ground and air teams are working around the clock to keep the ex-orphans, wild elephants and other wildlife safe.
