Reteti Elephant Sanctuary
Established in August 2016, Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is designed to rescue and release orphaned and abandoned elephant calves, whilst creating much needed benefits to the local people that live alongside them. To date, Reteti has released 10 elephants back to the wild. Reteti also houses a mobile elephant rescue team that works daily on elephant rescues, community awareness and the mitigation of human/wildlife conflict. All the keepers are from the local Samburu community and are formally trained in the care, rehabilitation and release of elephant calves. An elected board from within the Samburu community oversees all operational aspects of the Sanctuary.
