When an Elephant Smiles


Every day, dozens of elephants are killed by poachers seeking for their ivory, meat and other body parts. Elephant calves left without their mothers are sure to die as they lack survival skills and source of food. In Zimbabwe, there is a place where orphaned baby elephants can have a second chance at life. The Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery founded by Roxy Danckwerts on her family farm rescues helpless infants, providing them with care and love 24/7 in a bid to reintegrate mighty animals back to the wild.
