Rachael has worked at GRI for over ten years, taking the organisation from strength to strength and helping to give so many vulnerable young elephants a second chance at life. The demand for ivory, particularly in the Asian market, sadly leads to the poaching of elephants for their tusks. When a female elephant is poached, a helpless calf is often left behind – frightened, defenseless and likely to starve. If a lone elephant calf is reported to Rachael and her team, they will do everything they can to deploy to the location of the calf as quickly as possible, rescuing and transporting the calf to the Elephant Orphanage, where around-the-clock care is given.
