Meet Daphne Sheldrick
About the book
This is the story of a girl who grew up to rescue baby elephants orphaned by ivory poachers.
This is the story of a lady known as “Mother To Elephants.”
Born free – living free! How young, orphaned elephants found a playful temporary home with a different kind of family. A true story filled with love and determination.
No doubt you’ve heard the saying, “Mother knows best!” But what if the baby is a six-hundred-pound elephant, and the mother is of the two-legged kind? Would the saying still hold true?
Mothering elephants is what Daphne Sheldrick did her entire life. As a young girl, she was put in charge of wounded or abandoned animals. As a grownup, Daphne and her dedicated team saved and nurtured countless elephants.
When a tiny, milk-dependent calf arrived, Daphne’s determination would be tested. No one had ever hand-reared an elephant baby this young, but what Daphne learned with Aisha would be the key to saving future orphaned elephants. What’s more, she had an elephant-sized dream of returning them to the wild!
