Ostrich and elephant form unlikely friendship

Thank heavens for conservation efforts such as those run by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya.

The organisation focuses on protecting the black rhino and African elephant, both of which are heading for extinction due to poaching.

They don't stop at just elephants and rhinos, either. If opportunity arises to do some good, they'll step in

Take, for example, Pea, ostrich rescued in 2014.

Pea was actually brought in with her sibling Pod who escaped the grounds of the sanctuary.

This left Pea all on her own - but thankfully there were plenty of elephants who were ready to take her in.

A photo taken by one of the keepers from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust shows Pea and a rescued baby elephant named Jotto.



They also shared this picture on their Facebook page of the two cuddling together in the Nairobi nursery.

So thank you, David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. You're doing a sterling job. If you feel inclined, you can send them a donation here.
