“Benjamin, it must be so rewarding for you and the whole Sheldrick team when these former orphans stop by with their offspring to say hello. So heartwarming. Proud to donate to such an amazing organization,” wrote a Twitter user. “She must be teaching her little one where to find love, help, and safety if it’s ever needed beyond the herd. I taught my children the houses to run to for help if I wasn’t near,” shared another.

“All these people saying the orphans come back to show off their babies. I reckon they come back to introduce the human family to the larger herd to which these beautiful humans belong,” expressed a third.
