We have so many Elephant back in the sanctuary and a huge number of young.

The view with a lodge
On my way to work in the eye clinic from The Bluff I always admired this beautiful Commiphora Riperia on Taita Hills Salt Lick Sanctuary.
I had often thought that, as well as planting seedlings, we should try to rescue trees tipped over by elephant.
When I saw that my favourite tree had suffered exactly this fate I enlisted the ever-helpful Sarova Team and, together, we pulled the tree back up.
It remains to be seen whether the Commiphora will recover.
