"Slow Coach": Last Little Elephant to Finish Feeding by 

Baby African Eelephants, Loxodonta Africana, at feeding time with their keeper at the David Sheldrik Wildlife Trust, Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa. The trust cares for baby elephants, & a few Rhinocerous, returning them to the wild when they are old enough to fend for themselves. The Trust is also an educational facility and Kenyon school children are admitted free. The staff stay with their charge 24 hours a day on a 3 day rotational arrangement with another staff member. The babies have 2 hourly feeds, and during the morning for 2 hours visitors are permitted to watch the feeding and the after-play. It is a wonderful experience.
Baby elephants are brought to the trust when they have lost their mothers and would otherwise die, mainly due to poaching. The status of the elephant is variously classified as threatened or endangered.
