Our wonderful vet Dr. Comfort (I know, great name!) just completed MmaMotse’s annual checkup. She is one special elephant. He was able to draw blood from the back of her ear without any sedative, which is almost unheard of without lots of training! As long as we were giving her treats, she didn’t seem to even notice him.
The trust this young elephant has in our handlers is overwhelming. It brings tears to my eyes when I witness the love they feel for each other. We are so lucky to have such a sweet, gentle and kind elephant as our first rescue. She will teach all the others who come along that we can be trusted to love and care for them.
I hate always asking for donations, but…we have new mouths to feed and care for. As our elephant family grows, so will the number of people we can employ. I hope you will consider making a donation today to help us with the ever-growing expenses.
Given how the eco-tourism industry is growing in Maun, Bee, Scott and I believe that revenue from visitors will eventually cover the day-to-day operations and the basic orphanage will be self-sustaining. But we are not there yet. And there will always be expansion, improvements and one-time rescue expenses.
I know there are many organizations vying for your donation dollars and it can be overwhelming to decide where to give. Already together we have accomplished so much, but we still need your help. Please donate—any amount is appreciated.
