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.
Every three hours, each milk dependent orphaned elephant is hand-fed two bottles of freshly mixed specialist formula that best matches an elephant’s milk. Your gift could help us provide essential nourishment and nutrients to growing elephants at our Nursery.
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.
