Modelled after the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary in the Mathew’s Range is a community-led initiative that seeks to rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned or abandoned elephants calves within Samburu County. Abandoned eles are usually as a result of poaching, man-made wells, human-wildlife conflict or natural mortality. This community driven project was started in order to care for these young ones and retain them within the county.
All the keepers are from the local community and are formally trained in the care of elephant calves. Since March 2017, the sanctuary has successfully returned five abandoned calves to their families. This facility also houses a mobile elephant rescue team that works daily on elephant rescue, community awareness and the mitigation.
