Sock stars: little donations make a big difference

The Game Rangers International Elephant Orphanage Project (GRI-EOP) team based in Zambia were thrilled to receive an incredibly generous donation of socks from Lewis Bedford, son of Karen Botha, our CEO.

GRI-EOP work to rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned elephants back in the wild, working alongside the Department of National Parks and Wildlife in Zambia. At David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, we’re extremely proud to fund them and the incredible work they do for elephants in the area.

Whether cleaning, teaching, securing the premises or nurturing the calves, the dedicated teams are on their feet every single day, doing whatever it takes to ensure the highest standard of care for the orphan elephants.

We are so grateful to Lewis for recognising their commitment to conservation! Find Lewis on Twitter and Instagram to see more of his donation ideas.
