Humans butcher elephants for their ivory. A baby is left without a mother, scared, traumatised, confused, alone and desperate. Left prey to lions and hyenas. Think about this the next time you buy a piece of ivory and imagine the horror and pain that these babies are subjected to. Lucky for you, this isn't going to happen to your baby. Help do something to stop the ivory trade. ❤•❦•:*´¨`*:•❦•❤
This baby elephant’s mother was killed for her tusks. Here the orphan rests in a stall with her keeper at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust's Nairobi Elephant Nursery. The conservancy in Kenya nurtures many young victims of the illegal ivory trade. Some will eventually return to the wild.
If you care about these beautiful elephants -- the demand for their tusks is killing them off. Please join Leonardo DiCaprio and World Wildlife Fund in taking action for elephants. Sign the WWF petition to ban the Thai ivory trade: http://wwf.to/12PdoKe This has to end before elephants are completely wiped out. Thank you for reading.
