The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a small, flexible charity, established in 1977 to honour to memory of a famous Naturalist, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the founder Warden of Tsavo East National Park in Kenya, where he served from its inception in 1948 until his transfer to Nairobi in 1976 to head the Planning Unit of the newly created Wildlife Conservation & Management Department. David died 6 months later but his legacy of excellence and the systems he installed for the management of Tsavo and wildlife generally in Kenya, particularly in the sphere of wildlife husbandry and ethics, lives on.

On the day in 2009 that Kristin Davis helped rescue an abandoned elephant calf while on safari in Kenya, she fell in love with African elephants and became a huge supporter of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. When babies are separated from their mothers, TDSWT protects the orphaned elephants from poachers and reintegrates them into their herds and natural habitats.

Kristin Davis has adopted a baby girl – oh, did we mention she has a trunk?
The Sex and the City actress welcomed Ajuba, a baby female elephant, to her family while working with The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya.
“Ajuba lives at @DSWT, I adopted her + u can too!” reads the caption for a photo she posted Tuesday on Twitter.
Ajuba isn’t the first gentle giant that Davis has sponsored through the organization. In 2009, she was elated over her adoption of Chaimu, an abandoned female elephant that she helped save from the lava slopes of Kenya’s Chyulu Hills.
As a spokesperson for DSWT, Davis, 48, advocates for a ban on the sale of ivory to keep elephants from extinction. Did we mention she also gets to hang out with these cuddly creatures, including Solio the rhino (whom she also shared a photo of on Tuesday)?
“Solio, a Black Rhino, loves an afternoon scratch,” she Tweets. “Always amazing 2 B around these animals.” (Source

Help Kristin Davis and Leonardo DiCaprio put a stop to elephant slaughter.
Across Africa, elephants are being slaughtered by poachers in record numbers — and their tusks hacked off with chainsaws — to make luxury items, statues and trinkets in Asia. But in days, Thailand will host a key global summit on illegal trade in endangered species, giving us a rare chance to stop this futile massacre.
Thailand is the world’s largest unregulated ivory market and a top driver of the illegal trade.They’ve been in the hot seat for years, yet so far little has been done to clamp down on their role in the elephant attack. But Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has just announced that she is considering a full ivory ban. That’s why we started a global petition on the Avaaz site, to give this campaign the last push it needs to win.
This is the best chance we’ve had in years to have a meaningful victory for Africa’s elephants — we just need to put people power behind it. Join me now to stop the bloody ivory trade. Sign the urgent petition and share it with everyone.
Help Kristin Davis and Extra host Maria Menounos save the elephants for Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Head over to www.iworry.org for more information and sign their petition to help stop the African ivory trade.
Kristin has urged her fans to shun ivory; insisting ruthless dealers are exploiting a loophole in the law to sell the banned substance as antiques. The Sex and the City star adopted an abandoned baby elephant during a visit to Africa in 2009 and launched a crusade to save the endangered species, for which she was handed the Humane Society’s 2010 Wyler Award.
Now, Davis is stepping up her campaign by highlighting the illegal trade in ivory and calling on the public to beware of tricks used by black market salesmen.
She tells U.K. TV show This Morning, “Number one: Never, ever, ever buy ivory. Because what they are doing is they are saying that it’s antique. They are claiming that it’s antique so you will go to some beautiful shop and they will say, ‘Here’s an antique ivory chest from 1912′, and you think, ‘Ok, how beautiful, I can buy that’. No, no, no – they are faking it.”
“They have taken it and rubbed it to make it look like it’s old. So people are unwillingly supporting this illegal black market sale of illegal ivory. Never buy ivory.”
My daughter isn’t old enough for screen time and I haven’t started letting her play with my iPhone too much. But there’s one exception: when we’re flying. I think that constitutes an emergency, right? She is just captivated by all the other baby’s faces and their expressions in the Baby Play Face App, and it definitely keeps her focused on takeoff. Which is really important, because Gemma is the kind of kid who just wants to wave to every single person on the plane!

Kristin received the Oxfam Women’s Leadership award during the Oxfam Sisters on the Planet Summit awards ceremony & reception at the Rayburn House Office Building on March 7, 2012 in Washington, DC. I am so proud and happy for her! We here at Kristin Davis Central want to congratulate her for such an amazing achievement! Head over to the gallery for the latest additions.
Kristin Davis admits she was initially “nervous” about holding her new daughter Gemma Rose in case she “hurt” her. The Sex and the city actress – who announced she had adopted the tot earlier this month – says when she first took responsibility for the little girl she was worried she wasn’t doing everything right.
“I was nervous about whether it would work out. Then when Gemma came to my house she was so tiny and precious that I was nervous I would hurt her. It is an amazing thing to be a responsible for a tiny baby and I just wanted her to have the best care and all the love possible.”
The 46-year-old beauty – who has adopted Gemma as a single parent – is loving every minute of parenthood as she had wanted to be a mother for such a long time.
She added in an interview with Britain’s Hello! magazine: “I have been thinking about adoption for a long time. And it had taken me a while to feel that I could take on parenthood by myself. It is a huge change in my life, but one I am so ready for. I love taking care of Gemma more than I ever could have imagined. She is a very easy baby, she is easily soothed and is sleeping really well. She lets me know when she is uncomfortable and knows how to speak her mind already – in her own baby language, of course.”
