R.I.P. Nchan

Posted by
Pied Crow (Abuja, Nigeria) on 26 April 2010 in Animal & Insect.

I have posted a version of this image before, but yesterday I learned that Nchan, the elephant orphan pictured here, has died. I was fostering Nchan, because I loved her floppy-edged ears. The work that the Sheldrick Trust does to raise orphan elephants and reintroduce them to wild-living herds is astonishing and challenging. http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/
