Dame Daphne Sheldrick on Love, Life and Elephants: “The most important thing for an elephant is the family...they have the same sense of family as us, they have all the same emotional traits, and they have many other things that you see in your own children.” This Save the Elephant Day, remember the incredible life and legacy of conservationist Dame Daphne Sheldrick, who passed last week.
