Only 3 percent of baby elephants survive when orphaned by poachers who slaughtered their parents for their ivory. Touched by their plight, Dr. Mary Baures, a psychologist expert in treating trauma, traveled to Africa and adopted a baby elephant through the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. That visit inspired a series of photography safaris during which she captured the strength, grace, and majestic beauty of African wildlife. At the same time, she chronicled the devastating consequences of the brutal ivory trade, and the joyous recovery of a few orphaned calves. She has now adopted four baby elephants. This book is their story.

Love Heals Baby Elephants: Rebirthing Ivory Orphans explores how love, community and play help these babies overcome their trauma. Behind the joy of the survival of a few is still the horror of the global trafficking of elephant tusks and rhinoceros horns through organized crime, corrupt governments, and greed. These wise and gentle giants are now on the brink of extinction. Dr. Baures’ breathtaking photos are an urgent call to action to stop the imminent extinction. Love Heals Baby Elephants takes the reader on an unforgettable journey.

“This wonderfully written and magnificently photographed book about orphan elephants makes us understand the powerful similarities and connections between humans and animals. When we understand this, the slaughter of elephants for ivory becomes a crime against all we aspire to be as human beings.”

– Margaret Lazarus, Academy Award–winning filmmaker of Defending Our Lives.
