My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Sheldrick Wildlife Trust USA, Laguna Hills, CA, USA
I was flipping thru You Tube videos when I came across an orphan baby Rhino video. I stopped to watch it and fell in love with this little rhino. She had so much spunk. Her name was Maarifa. That's when I found out about adopting an orphan for $50.00. That's such a small amount to be able to help so much. When I checked out the DSWT's website I saw that it started as a nursery for baby elephants. I have always loved elephants. So I decided to adopt both an elephant ( Larro ) and a rhino ( Maarifa ). Right after I adopted Maarifa (10 days later) she passed away. The trust asked if it was ok that they transferred my adoption to a full grown rhino named Maxwell. He is a long time resident there because of his blindness. I have become an addict watching their videos and seeing all the things that they do to help all orphaned animals that come to their attention. They also help the wild animals with water wells, Vet services and anti poaching patrols. They give their hearts and soles to save these beautiful animals for our future generations though these programs and teaching the locals how to coexist without human wildlife conflict. I have never had the chance to go there but it is a dream / on the bucket list of mine. I am actually a little jealous of all the people that get to interact with these precious animals on a daily basis. With times being what they are it is nice to see the good in the world and the videos have helped with all the home bound people because of the pandemic. If I could say one thing, It would be that this organization is the greatest and that everyone should try adopting or donating to this organization. For anyone interested in this organization check out their website and history.
