Nelly Nelly wishes she had wings. She doesn't mind being an elephant but would really rather be a ladybird.

Nelly's Story

Nelly has only just arrived to Tilos after a very long and uncomfortable journey. Just sharing a Coca Cola with me in the village square was all the adventure she could manage for today! Maybe tomorrow I'll be able to tell her that she's arrived to the home of her ancestors ... the famous dwarf elephants of Tilos.

About Nelly's Keeper

I'm an English woman who has lived permanently with my husband, Charlie, on the Greek island of Tilos for the last 10 years. We are volunteers who help the refugees when they arrive to Tilos from Turkey by small boat. This has been my life for the last 18 months and I miss them when they're not here........
