The youngest orphans

The youngest orphans 

These little orphans are only a few months old. They are wearing blankets to keep warm. In the wild, they would be close to their mother whose body heat would warm them. For information about the elephants at the orphanage see www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/asp/orphans_history.asp.

This is so sad, Esther. Why are they orphans? Are the mothers killed by hunters? or ill ? Wonder how they can find them IN TIME to save them....?
Your photograph is so touching ....

Poor things! It's definitely sick how poachers kill innocent creatures with such heartlessness. Wonderful capture!
