Rewilding 13 Elephants from Kent to Kenya

Rewilding 13 Elephants from Kent to Kenya

We at The Aspinall Foundation are quite literally taking on our largest ever conservation challenge: flying 13 elephants - weighing 25 tonnes - more than 7,000 km across the globe to return individuals from this iconic species to their ancestral homelands.

This is the first time that a herd of elephants has ever been rewilded anywhere in the world. No elephant rewilding project of this scale has ever been attempted before.

The Aspinall Foundation will work with The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and the Kenya Wildlife Service to rewild an entire breeding herd of 13 African elephants, including 3 calves.

Help us make this possible by donating to our campaign today! https://www.aspinallfoundation.org/the-aspinall-foundation/backtothewild/

This February we saw Saba and Nairo two captive bred cheetah from our parks in Kent take their final steps into the wild after a long acclimatisation period in South Africa where they honed their natural instincts and learnt to hunt independently. Saba and Nairo now roam across 8000 hectares of wilderness at Mount Camdeboo Private Reserve where we hope they will sire a new generation of wild cheetah boosting the wild population across the country.
