Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT)
As one of Africa’s oldest wildlife charities and a leading conservation organisation, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT) embraces all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife.
The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife and habitats. Working across Kenya, our projects include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown.
Selected projects are:
Orphans´ project: Rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned baby elephants, rhinos and other wildlife, so that they can enjoy a life back in the wild when grown.
Community outreach: Improving livelihoods and engaging communities living alongside wildlife.
Anti-Poaching: Deploying boots on the ground for the protection of elephants, rhinos and other wild species
