Rescuing orphaned elephants that weigh around half a ton is no easy feat. Snap straps are security straps that ensure our teams can safely transport rescued orphans without risk of them injuring themselves and treat injured wild animals.
Rescued orphan elephants in our care require specialist milk formula to survive and our Keepers bottle feed the Nursery orphans freshly mixed milk every three hours, day and night. Your gift can help us provide 2 bottles of milk – enough for one milk feed for one orphan.
Every night we line the stables at our Nursery with hay so the youngest orphans feel warm and cosy at night. Hay also provides a delicious snack for older orphans.
Gift program note — We will always endeavour to direct your donation towards the purchase of the specific gift you have selected. Should this not be possible as an item is not available for us to purchase, the price has increased or the item is no longer needed, we will direct your donation towards the project area from which your gift was selected – ensuring the project continues to benefit from your kind support.
Alternately you could adopt an orphan as a gift for yourself or a loved one.
