Regrann from @amivitale - Photo by @amivitale. Just 4 days left to join in the fun and help support this rambunctious group of orphans and maybe win a trip to visit them yourself. Nadasoit and the gang play at the mudhole at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in northern Kenya. Reteti is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of Africa and provides a home to elephants orphaned as a result of poaching, human wildlife conflict and drought related issues. All of these elephants will one day be returned to the wild to live the life they were meant to lead.
What’s happening at Reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way humans relate to wild animals. This oasis where orphans grow up, learning to be wild so that one day they can rejoin their herds, is as much about people as it is about elephants.
You have until this Tuesday, Aug. 21 to make your sweepstakes donation to this incredible place and the people who protect wildlife. Make a $10 contribution in support of Reteti by August 21 for a chance to win a trip to Kenya, see Dave Matthews in concert, take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by Dave and receive a @nikonusa D7500 18-300mm VR Lens Kit with @prizeo (Link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems). Learn more about how you can get involved and help support this vital initiative by following @amivitale @r.e.s.c.u.e & @conservationorg.
