And Here’s Something A Little Different…

Here’s a little something special, which I oiginallly produced for Google Plus’s +African Tuesday  #africantuesday  and their “Wonderful women of Africa” theme curated by +Morkel Erasmus and +Johan Swanepoel

It’s a brief video from our visit to the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Kenya 2009. There we were lucky enough to witness Angela (Sheldrick) calm and nurture a baby elephant called Shaba….just days old and petrified, the wee ellie was crying out having witnessed its mother be cruelly removed from him. The calming influence of Angela was palpable – the work her and Daphne do is surely worthy of any accolade of great women of Africa? If only I could do something half as worthy!
