nubbsgalorephotos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

I just made someone at my bank have a good laugh.  I just called them up and there’s this automated voice that says “Please state the reason for your call” and no matter how many times I said the reason it wouldn’t understand me, so finally I just shouted down the phone, “I WANT TO SPEAK TO A FUCKING HUMAN BEING!” and that one bloody well accepted and a few seconds later this laughing man answered the phone saying, “I hear you want to speak to a human being?”

Oh man, don’t get me started on voice response systems. I call banks a lot as part of my job and the systems where you have to talk are the worst. Go back to the push button system, please! It’s so much easier to just ‘press 1, press 2,’, etc, than to try to get the system to understand what I’m saying sometimes.
