Raising orphans in Tanzania

This is a 5-month-old orphaned elephant being loved up by his caretaker, Thomas Chalice, at the Tony Fitzjohn rhino sanctuary in Mkomazi, Tanzania. Chalice has a tough job ahead of several years to get this baby through the grief of losing his mother & emotionally able to survive. It would be interesting to interview Chalice & other caretakers about the grief they feel when they finally have to say good-bye to their wards. They probably have to hire elephants to care for grieving caretakers.(Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty)
