When you foster adopt a baby elephant it's for one year and when you do that you get updates and you get it thank you and email that has a color image of Angela Sheldrick's amazing the beautiful water color paintings...
Angela Sheldrick is an incredibly passionate (albeit quiet passion by NYC standards) super talented painter with deep sensitivity to color, tonal variation, line, and of course her subject matter mostly baby elephants -- deep felt heart and soul front-line activism as well as art!
Angela Sheldrick learned her frontline from her mom Dame Sheldrick and it's in her DNA from her Dad.
Right now but she has so many responsibilities it's amazing she can find time to do half of it let alone as much as she does. I've bought her mother's book on audio and paperback and the David Sheldrick foundation has taught me a new understanding of what love means especially love for elephants and animals they were amazing their dedication and the heartbreaks they faced yet never given up Noe's continued on such courage and tenacity
i'm recovering from my own drama it's been terrible from a violent attack and this new lab is really helping me and I understand how sensitive the caretakers of the baby elephants are trying to keep them alive and that some baby elephants cannot survive because of the anger and grief at seeing their mother murdered in front of them...
Dame Sheldrick started this foundation to honor her husband David passed away and from listening to the audiobook I learned profound love for her husband and for the elephants and her children and also that love means the matter how much sadness just never give up ever!!!!
Loving elephants means a lot of tears but the David Sheldrick foundation is taught me about the optimism tenacity and endurance of love and I'm joining them to fight the ban on ivory and said fight to prevent the extinction of elephants and rhinos as well as other wildlife they rescue pick a stunning new little giraffe baby!!!!
I found this amazing foundation because of the Cecil The lion tragedy and Facebook -- was never a fan of Facebook I profoundly disliked Facebook but are used for blogging but a Facebook algorithm connected me to the Sheldrick Foundation and now this amazing organization is one of my deep deep passion is in love.
I'm not ready to go visit Africa yet I am cat codependent and dealing with my own traumas but every day I just think about the Sheldrick foundation every day I just love them and think of them and the watercolors by Angela many of the orphans wrapped in little blankets for their security to help them cope with the trauma and loss that they're suffering as their keepers begin their years of work and devotion to help heal them if they can because not all baby elephants can recover.
Miracle work this particular organization is they actually return the survivors back into the wild but it takes years and the elephants go back when they're ready it's beautiful powerful work I want to be part of it anyway I can from New York City!!!!
