Video by @amivitale. Happy World Rhino Day from Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e)! Baby black rhino Loijipu was abandoned when he was only day old. Now 6 months old, expert wildlife keeper Mary and her colleagues will feed and care for him until he is old enough to be released back into the wild. You can help the animals being saved here in Northern Kenya by supporting Reteti and other organizations working directly with the local communities.

Photo by @amivitale. The rescued elephant herd on the move near Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e). Every day at Reteti, all 9 of the orphaned elephants being cared for head out into the wild at 6 a.m. and don't return until 6 p.m. This time in nature helps them become accustomed to what being in the wild means, and introduces the potential to meet the other animals who live there. This helps prepare the elephants for a better transition when they are ready to return to their natural habitat.

Photo by @amivitale. Wildlife keeper Mary leads young elephants Shaba, Bawa and Pokot on their daily wilderness walk in the area around Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya. Shaba has become the leader of the little herd of rescued elephants being cared for at Reteti. They were all orphaned by environmental causes or poaching, but these wilderness walks help the elephants learn natural behaviors so they can eventually be released into the wild. After his rescue, when Bawa was finally strong enough to start going out on walks, Shaba would never leave Bawa and Bawa would never leave Shaba.

Photo by @amivitale. Elephant Sosian watches as rescued baby Kinya is brought into Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) as a new rescue back in February. The elephants at Reteti always show a great deal of interest when new rescues arrive. Often, they play an important part in helping new arrivals adjust and feel comfortable.

Photo by @amivitale. Mpala passes through low vegetation during her daily nature walk at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya. Mpala came to the sanctuary on June 21 from a ranch in Laikipia. She was orphaned due to the ongoing  drought. Today, she is thriving at Reteti under the excellent care of the wildlife keepers.

Photo by my friend Joe. Shaba tries to borrow my hat at Reteti elephant sanctuary in N. Kenya.  My heart is happy here where I get to share these incredible stories that show us what we can achieve and the very best of humanity. When we truly understand each others stories, we are transformed, and no matter where you go, the joy of human emotions remains the same.
