Gisele Bundchen has posted several photos from her January trip to Kenya on her Facebook page, and she has also written a few blogs about her adventure.
The supermodel, who was named United Nations Environment Program Goodwill Ambassador in September of 2009, was at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Sanctuary as part of her first official visit to Africa.
The Brazilian beauty wrote on her Facebook page, "When I went to Africa I discovered that elephants are one of the smartest and most complex mammals on earth. If we don’t protect them, they can be extinguished." We're thinking she means extinct, but at least her heart is in the right place!
So what about the little one? "I met a baby elephant who was only two months old and had just arrived at the sanctuary. He touched my heart. He was shy, scared, and still traumatized from losing his mother. He was not ready to be playful with the other members of his adopted herd. He was so sweet, looking for a little love and one of my friends hugged his trunk. It was [amazing] to meet the baby elephants." Awww!
