The Foreign Service Journal, May 2024

102 MAY 2024 | THE FOREIGN SERVICE JOURNAL BY ARMANDO L. MUIR n NAIROBI, KENYA T he Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi works in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service to rescue young elephants, rhinos, and other animals left orphaned by illegal poaching and other forms of human–wildlife conflict. These elephants, ages 2 to 4, were playing in the mud during feeding time at the orphanage in Nairobi. The trust was established in 1977 by Daphne Sheldrick, a British Kenyan conservationist. She named it in honor of her late husband, David, who had served as a founding warden of Tsavo, the largest national park in Kenya. n Armando L. Muir is a Foreign Service information management officer (IMO) serving as the diplomatic technology officer at the U.S. embassy in Suva, Fiji.
