I Yam Hungry is not only about making informed choices about your food, but also about life and how your choices create chain reactions for yourself and the people around you (including the planet). This started out as a blog strictly about health, nutrition and food advocacy, but as time went on we realized that sometimes the choices we make about the food we eat come about from the values we hold true in our everyday lives. I YAM HUNGRY FOR KNOWLEDGE, HEALTH, NUTRITION, FREEDOM, JUSTICE AND HAPPINESS FOR ALL LIVING CREATURES AND CONSCIOUS BEINGS ON THIS PLANET. That being said I hope you enjoy our posts and help spread love and light to all.

WE LOVE YOU <3

photos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts
