Dame Daphne Sheldrick is the first person ever to have successfully hand-reared newborn elephants. In her memoir Love, Life and Elephants: And African Love Story, she tells about her pioneering work saving countless elephants, rhinos, and other baby animals, and about her love and partnership with David Sheldrick, the famous Tsavo Park warden.
