The Reteti Sanctuary — the first community-owned elephant and rhino sanctuary in East Africa — provides a safe place for injured elephants and rhinos to heal and a home for orphaned elephants and rhinos affected by poaching and the ivory trade. Where possible, Reteti focuses on rescue and return, with the goal of reuniting the calves with their mothers within 48 hours. Launched in 2016, the Sanctuary has already saved one black rhino and more than two dozen elephants.
