Today is #FamilyDay in the world of social media.

Across all digital platforms, individuals are posting pictures of their human families and animal ones too.

While September is also considered National Sewing month for large reputable brands like Singer, what really caught my attention was the work a young Wildlife Keeper named Mary is doing at the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary in North Kenya.

Mary leads young elephants Shaba, Bawa and Pokot on their daily wilderness walk. These baby elephants were orphaned due to environmental causes and poaching and Mary's work is key to their survival now. 

These nature walks are the learned behaviors that baby elephants acquire from their herd ( familia ) and once they walk together like this, they are bonded forever.

To follow this amazing work and see photos follow @r.e.s.c.u.e  and @sararacamp on Instagram for the latest to continue to honor them.
