On the 3rd of September Angela Sheldrick was alerted by Dr. Limo, the KWS Veterinary Officer seconded to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Mara Mobile Veterinary Unit, about a tragic case reported from the Masai Mara. Dr. Limo and the Mara Veterinary Team were taking their much deserved off days and were else where in the country at the time, but had received a report of an injured female elephant. In their absence the DSWT funded Sky Vets was requested.
Important Note: Thank you for adopting and being part of the SWT family, it is important to note that your donation will help any orphan in need. Our orphans will need more than one adoptive parent.
