nubbsgalorephotos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

that wonderful feeling when i’ve written something that no one’s clamoring for, and i get to decide whether to post it at 10pm or wait until the next day.

eh, i’m gonna post it now. why not.

and then eat dinner, as today has gotten entirely out of hand

thirddeadlysin:

do i (or do you guys i guess) know anyone who does non-figure drawing commissions? like, could draw a space vehicle thing from a text description? nothing super detailed, no schematics or anything. but i need to figure out how this ship is put together so i can figure out where to move people around so they can do things and all i’m capable of are some circles and some lines

so in class students forget pencils and ask me if i have a pencil

today i bought eight pretty HELLO KITTY pencils

and i cannot wait for a very muscular man to ask if i have a pencil

so i can hand him a HELLO KITTY pencil

YES

(granted if a girl asks for one she might love it and adopt it, or the guy might, who knows)

(i really need to put sparkly poof balls on them so i can get them back because HELLO KITTY)

look, lancelot
