american photographer, filmmaker and writer ami vitale (@amivitale ) tirelessly shares the story of the reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ), an organization in northern kenya that rescues, raises and releases orphaned and abandoned baby elephants. “i want to shine a light on these unsung heroes that are out there changing the destiny of their own landscape,” says ami. due to ivory poaching and climate change, more and more elephants are in need of care and protection. reteti was founded in 2016 by the native samburu people to meet that need. “this place is 100 percent indigenously owned and run, which makes it different from every other elephant sanctuary, where there are a lot of outsiders and volunteers,” says ami. “it’s really unique, and it gives the samburu people a lot of pride. i want people to know about this place because it’s incredibly inspiring, and could be a blueprint for others.” 🐘
