On the first of July Angela received news about an abandoned elephant first sighted by the Tsavo Trust monitoring team close to the Dida Harea plains, in Southern Tsavo East National Park. The calf was continually being rejected by the wild herds that were passing while heading to water, and having been observed for much of the day, it was clear that this was an orphan. She was thin, weak and extremely disorientated.
Important Note: Thank you for considering an adoption. Each orphan needs more than one foster parent: your adoption donation will be processed by the SWT UK and Kenya to help all the orphans in our care.
