"People often ask why I love elephants so much. Zongoloni's story is a big reason why."

Yashar Ali 🐘 Verified account @yashar

People often ask why I love elephants so much. Zongoloni's story is a big reason why. Her mom was shot by a poacher, but she refused to leave her side. A member of the @DSWT team was moved to tears by her dedication.

Today, she's a @DSWT orphan.

1. People should try to be even half as civilized as the "animals"

The world would be a much better place.

2. What a heartbreaker. Elephants are such magnificent creatures.

How can some humans be so heartless as to kill them?

4. A marvelous group, god bless them.


Founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, in honour of the memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the DSWT claims a rich and deeply rooted family history in wildlife and conservation.

I actually just yesterday spent a long time on their website, reading the tales of the elephants they have rescued.

5. We continually seek to regard ourselves in an elevated position above the rest of nature

namely because we choose to focus on our potential alone. However, when you look at the full spectrum of homo sapiens' presence and effect, our unwarranted arrogance is apparent.

I see glimmers of our better selves, of our noble aspects and it's bolstering. Unfortunately it's also an outlier.

We are capable of so much more. So, so much.
