When people talk about “the elephant in the room,” they’re usually speaking metaphorically. In Roxy Danckwerts’s home, however, the elephant in the room is 100% real.
Roxy is the founder of an animal rescue center in Harare, Zimbabwe, called Wild is Life. The facility takes in wounded, orphaned, or protected animals and rehabilitates them, ultimately hoping to release them back into the wild. In her role as director, Roxy has been caring for rescued animals of all shapes and sizes for over 20 years.
