Angelina Jolie and daughter Shiloh travel to Namibia and officially open the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary

She gave birth to daughter Shiloh Nouvel on May 27, 2006 in Swakopmund, Namibia.

And Angelina Jolie and her Namibian-born daughter jetted off to the African country earlier this month to officially open the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary.

The sanctuary, named in honor of the 11-year-old, is part of the N/a’an ku sê Foundation.


The new sanctuary is funded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation; she and estranged husband Brad Pitt gave the foundation a $2 million grant in 2011.

Animals like rhinos and elephants will be cared for at the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary – saved from poachers and abusers; the foundation called it a ‘place of hope’ and a ‘second chance’ for the animals.
