Born August 10, 2012, Rorogoi was 14 months old when she was rescued by the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Following a likely incident of poaching, Rorogoi survived for over a month on her own. How she did this is a mystery. However, her incredible story of heartbreak and survival – and of the farmer who offered her refuge is truly remarkable. I’m proud to be part of her journey moving forward.
