Dame Daphne Sheldrick Has Passed Away


I know many readers of this forum have visited the Sheldrick Orphanage in Nairobi, as I have. Her work was truly groundbreaking and it is good to know if will continue.

I was saddened to learn of this when I received the email from DSWT this morning. While not unexpected, it's certainly sad nonetheless. What an incredible legacy she leaves behind though, and she's handed off most everything to her daughter to take up as the next generation so her good work will live on. RIP Dame Daphne!

I was very sad to read of her passing. We visited the Elephant Orphanage in February and adopted two elephants. The work that is performed by the Sheldrick foundation is incredible. I have not finished reading Daphne's book. It will take on a different meaning now.
