"A pioneering woman who helped to raise awareness of the plight of elephants as well as educate on our responsibility to protect this species - and, indeed the rest of the animal kingdom.
My husband and I were fortunate enough to visit Sheldrick's orphanage in Kenya last year - truly a long term dream come true.
We were able to witness the care and compassion of the elephant handlers first hand. A remarkable place and a fitting legacy for a remarkable women."
"My condolences to the family of Ms. Sheldrick. I became aware of her work with orphaned elephants when I saw the story of her and the baby elephant Aisha some time back. How it moved me! Her feelings for Aisha still moved as strongly thru her heart as they did so many years ago. It was such a beautiful love story that I cried as though I knew both Ms Sheldrick and Aisha myself, and I penned her an email to thank her for sharing their wonderful story with the world.
Even though I never met her she made such an impression on me. I'm sad that she's gone but I know a happy Aisha greeted her on the other side.
Rest In Peace, my friends."
