    photos 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

To know Tegan Higginbotham is to know her size. Her pixie haircut is coyly hidden under her beanie from the Sugglepot and Cuddlepie range.

But her petite frame packs a punch! Only the svelte can pull off an oversized coat with a dropped waist. 

Completing the look with monochrome scarf and jumper, Tegan creates a silhouette of style.

  3. Hugs. I’ll try to avoid tweeting about it.

    That’s not necessary. I’m sure you’ll have lots of things you’ll want to tweet about. I’m probably just going to try and spend less time on twitter next month.

  5. Ugh. My timeline is already filled with tweets about Edinburgh Festival. Might have to start muting it next month. Jealousy & depression is not a healthy combination.

  7. Why can’t I accept love? I will do anything to insulate myself from taking real emotional risks. I don’t know why but love is very threatening to me and so are the people that cause it. Those bastards! It’s crazy, but I guess what I have to accept is I love crazy and love is crazy. And I’m just gonna have to accept that.
