23 years ago, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust from Kenya rescued one orphaned elephant calf and named her Icholta. Unfortunately, Icholta was stuck in a waterhole from which they had to pull her out when she was only several weeks old.
Icholta recently returned to the trust to introduce her new baby to her human rescuers.
She spent her infancy in the nursery of the Trust and gradually learned how to live like a wild elephant thanks to the trust’s Voi Reintegration Unit.
She gave birth to Inca in 2016 and in January, she got back to the trust to show her new baby to her humans. They named the baby Izzy.

According to the trust, this is the 45th known calf that’s born by an orphan they rescued, raised, and helped reintegrate into the wild which is their home. The video was named “special family portrait”.
The organization added that Izzy was adjusting to the Tsavo routine well and that she loves mud baths already!
The video shared on Instagram shows proud Icholta who’s looking upon her son and daughter and the organization wrote how proud and humbled they are that this family is growing and thriving.
The fact that they met the happy family at the start of their 45th year feels proper, according to the organization.
The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT) is known for its efforts to keep elephants safe and they operate the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program on the planet.
The organization is doing a lot for wildlife.
They provide veterinary help, offer rescued orphans for adoption, and embrace measures for conservation, protection, and preservation of wildlife. Their efforts include anti-poaching and safeguarding the environment.
They have long been dedicated to strengthening the awareness in the community about the importance of preserving wildlife. They’re said to be one of the oldest charities for wildlife in Africa and recognized leaders in conservation.
