David Shelderick Wildlife Trust
Today, more than ever, your awareness of big game poaching is necessary. The Ivory market, derived from the greed of a Chinese businessman, has reached its highest demand and has African elephants and rhinos on the verge of extinction.
In an effort to help prevent the loss of these beautiful animals, the David Shelderick Wildlife Trust is rescuing the young of mothers who have been poached. The Trust’s mission statement is as follows:
“The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown.”
