The Way She Was

The first week with Bona she was a scary sight. She couldn’t have been more than a few weeks away from death in her state. She was literally lifeless, could hardly walk and had no spirit.

After 6 months of sugar water provided by the locals as a supplement for milk I guess it was to be expected. Thankfully Bona took to our supplements, a mixture of baby milk formula, marsupial milk replacer (Wombaroo) combined with coconut milk hot water a dose of love and 7 months later of hand feeding this gorgeous girl the rewards are priceless and nothing will ever take away that prode of knowing my actions saved a this gorgeous girls life.

Next Generation

So much is reliant on the next generation. The next generation of humans and the next generation of elephants too. As best as possible we need to give all remaining Sumatran elephants the opportunity to breed while simultaneously working constantly to maintain a beautiful and pristine habitat for these incredible animals to live peacefully. With each child we bring into this world we need to install a new culture of one of love for the animals, education and a way of life that lends itself to living in harmony with the incredible species found on the island of Sumatra. Every day is our opportunity to change things. Link in the bio. #elephants #conservation #sumatra #wild #berdiri #fightforanimals

Camouflage Camera Traps

Our attempts to camouflage camera traps were met with mixed results. Poachers and loggers have an appetite for destruction if they spot a camera.
