The Jacobs Family is holding a big yard sale on Saturday, June 9 from 8 AM to 2 PM in Southold at 285 Old Wood Path. They will be donating 100% of the sales to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a nonprofit that, for over 40 years, has been dedicated to protecting Kenya’s beautiful wildlife and habitats for generations. The DSWT is best known for their Orphan’s Project, a pioneering project that offers 24 hour care and support to rescued orphaned baby elephants and other wildlife that are dependent on the Trust for survival. The orphaned elephants can be at the Trust for up to 10 years, learning how to become wild elephants from other elephants who have gone through similar experiences. To date, more than 200 infant elephants and 15 black rhinos have been successfully hand raised, the majority of which are already living back in the wild. The public is invited to come by and find out how to foster baby elephants.
