An Injured baby elephant that can’t stand up meets the Kindness of Humanity. Awesome humans
The Udawalawe Elephant Transfer Home is a facility situated within Udawalawe National Park in Sri Lanka. It was established with a primary objective of rehabilitating orphaned elephant calves so that they can be released back into the wild. There is at least 1 young elephant that meets with fatal injuries that need to be treated at a facility like this within the care and regular access for the vets.
These facilities are absolutely required to keep the elephant population safe and turn it into a positive growth rate in the Island. There are thousands of wild elephants free roaming through national parks. Many of the young elephants get left behind sometimes due to several reasons that belong to another topic someday.
Taking care of these elephants is an expensive process funded by the Foster parent scheme within the facility. Anyone can help to foster an elephant and will be entitled to many rewards that come with it. Those individuals are given a chance to take photographs with the elephant, to name the elephant, publicity about the kind and charitable donations, and also a free circuit bungalow in Udawalawe National Park for two days per year.
This elephant baby, however, is severely injured and is completely weak with no ability to stand up. Its legs are weak and have no sign of life at that moment. This was when these officers took the chance to help this elephant stand up and practice to move a little while standing up using the help provided. The tent structure did have another reinforced steel bar to help sustain the weight of this young elephant.
They gave some massages to the elephant while feeding the elephant with some milk. These officers will be with this young one a lot and will be feeding and helping it to recover full strength in order to move on its own. Watch the full footage above and enjoy this kind footage and get inspired to be a part of the elephant rescuers community with the Wild Elephant.
We humbly invite you to join us with a journey full of love and help to our treasured wild elephants in the paradise island of Sri Lanka.
