A quick look at the baby elephants in this video (scroll below) is all it takes to see just how happy they are – their joy shines through when they play and roll around in the water, completely carefree and relaxed.
During a hot summer day, this kind of a pastime seems like the ultimate way to spend one’s time – and these little ellies are sure lucky.
But their days were not always like this –
this little bunch of orphaned elephants from the Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery is now finally safe after many obstacles, all thanks to the Nursery’s team efforts to change their lives. They are being rehabilitated with the final goal of reintroducing them to the wild, where they belong.
After the loss of their mothers, with whom elephants normally form very strong and vital bonds, the orphaned ellies have to learn all the good things in life again.
Fortunately, at places like this, every effort is made to give them every comfort and every joy they require and could ever need.
And what is a baby elephant’s life without hours and hours of playtime? Well, these babies do not have to worry about that scenario at all.
Pure Joy – this is what we would like every Orphaned Elephant to experience. You can help us help them here: goo.gl/HCIM8l / paypal.me/wildheartwildlife
These babies are finally safe and happy, thanks to the tireless efforts of the Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery. With the aim to be completely rehabilitated into the wild, the work and costs are enormous, and ongoing.
Please help us make a difference in the lives of the traumatized orphan ellies, by donating to our Mission:Wildlife Matters – Elephant Project, so that we can supply these babies (and their carers) with everything they require to become big, wild and free again.
Special Milk formula, medicine, uniforms, yardwork tools, cleaning equipment and consumables – it takes a lot to run an orphanage like this properly. No donation is too small. Let’s show these babies some Ellie-love!
