Orphaned Elephants Line Up to Hug the Woman Who Saved Them

There are dozens of elephants being raised at the Nairobi Elephant Orphanage in Kenya. They are there because sadly, their families have been killed for their ivory.

The rescue effort is all thanks to Daphne Sheldrick, who has devoted her life to saving these beautiful creatures for over 40 years.

“Elephants have taught me how to put the bad things behind turn the page and get on with living,” she says. “Understanding the traumas that elephants have to put up with and how they cope with it has made me a stronger person.”

Now, her elephants voluntarily line up to receive her hugs when she comes to visit.
