Tibbo’s trunk tosses, twists, tickles, twitches, squeals, squeaks and TRUMPETS too.
This is the story of a little orphan elephant with a very troublesome trunk.
This beautiful interactive appbook is illustrated and written by local artist, Louise Mulgrew. See her other beautiful illustrations on her website: http://www.louisemulgrew.com
Inspired by her work at elephant orphanage, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Louise drew on her experience to create baby elephant, Tibbo. Read more about her adventures on our Tibbo blog post here: http://www.boxoffrogsmedia.com/tibbos-troublesome-trunk

Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.
At the heart of the DSWT’s conservation activities is the Orphans’ Project, which has achieved world-wide acclaim through its hugely successful elephant and rhino rescue and rehabilitation program. The Orphans’ Project exists to offer hope for the future of Kenya’s threatened elephant and rhino populations as they struggle against the threat of poaching for their ivory and horn, and the loss of habitat due to human population pressures and conflict, deforestation and drought.
To date the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has successfully hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished its long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in our care.
