About Us

The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a global leader in elephant conservation and one of Africa’s most established wildlife charities. Founded in 1977 by Dame Daphne Sheldrick DBE, it is best known for its pioneering work rescuing orphaned elephants and reintegrating them back into the wild. Over the years, Trust has evolved into a multi-dimensional conservation body, tackling the greatest threats facing Kenya's natural world and engaging local communities in the process. It has successfully raised over 260 orphaned elephants, and 17 endangered black rhinos, through its renowned Orphans' Project, while its habitat preservation programs and Anti-Poaching, Aerial Surveillance, and Mobile Veterinary Units secure a future for all manner of wildlife.

In 2004 the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was incorporated as a charity in England & Wales (registered no: 1103836), for the protection and preservation of wildlife and habitats in East Africa. The UK based charity formed Sheldrick Trading Limited in 2020, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which directs its profits to the charity in support of its conservation mission.
