We visited the David Sheldrake Center in Nairobi today. They take in orphaned and injured baby elephants, nurse them back to health, and release them back into the wild.

Their success rate is very good.

Amazing stuff. I don't know how anyone could harm one of these creatures.

It's a pretty emotional thing once you learn just how intelligent these creatures really are.

Very cool and what an opportunity, Peegoo. I have to agree whole heartedly at what Hammond says. It's pure greed and disregard for wildlife.

That’s awesome.

If he was a cartoon, he definitely would have sprayed you with water from his trunk.

It's difficult to describe; closest thing I've experienced to this point is hogs, but harder.

The skin of the elephant is quite firm, and doesn't easily compress. It's like the dash top on a car or truck.

Elephants have hair, but it's more like bristles on a brush than hair or fur. Quite coarse. If you've been around hogs, you'll make that association.

The older I get the softer I become when it comes to the animal kingdom (coyotes and rodentia excluded). I recently did a day trip to Homosassa Springs and gotta say felt a low point when I passed the caged American Bald Eagles with a sloppily draped Mericun flag as a backdrop. These majestic creatures had a look on their faces that said "Kill me". But then I learned that all the creatures there are essentially in permanent rehab and have no chance in the wild. That made me feel better. A little.

As far as I’m aware in Florida birds of prey are well taken care of. If they can be released after surgery and rehab they will be.

I rescued an Owl about 5 months back, he was hit by a car and had both of his legs fractured. A Game and Wildlive Officer came out and took him. It turned out that he was the newly wed husband of the woman that is second in charge of the State Park I volunteer at. I got the updates from her. The bird was fixed, rehabbed and released.

Seeing all these different creatures up close and personal has changed my outlook on life.

For the better.

Our fellow mammals are pretty cool; I'm glad you're experiencing the diversity, and sharing it with the rest of us.
