For more than four decades, Daphne Sheldrick has devoted her life to rescuing orphaned animals in East Africa and preparing them for return to the wild on her elephant orphanage near Nairobi, Kenya.
An extraordinary conservationist, Sheldrick is the first person to successfully hand-rear newborn elephants, thanks in large part to the formula she perfected to mimic a mother elephant’s milk. In this American Museum of Natural History lecture, Sheldrick, who is featured in the Museum’s current IMAX feature, Born to Be Wild, will discuss her book Love, Life, and Elephants: An African Love Story. The event also will be streamed live online at amnh.org/live.
