Morula has a troubled past, and when Doug and Sandi met her at age 17 she was destined to be shot. Female elephants generally stay in the herds they are born into and their relationships with other females are life long. Since the only way to be part of a breeding herd or elephant family is to be born into one, Morula lives and thrives in her unique interspecies herd. Although Morula cannot join a wild herd, the long-term plan is to create a herd, with other orphaned females, to which she can belong. Once established, it is hoped the herd can be safely released together. Morula is a sweet elephant and is sure to steal your heart.
Jabu, an orphaned bull elephant, was attacked and injured by a wild bull elephant in a conflict for status. Due to his resulting joint injuries, Jabu requires individualised and innovative veterinary care and therapies. Currently, top international vets are working on stem cell therapy and other cutting-edge options for Jabu to help with his osteo-arthritis and the angulation in his wrist. Jabu’s need for supervision to avoid further injury precludes him from surviving alone in the wild. Jabu is an impressive bull and his story has caught the world’s attention as seen on Animal Planet’s “Dodo Heroes”. Follow Jabu on his blog and Instagram to learn more about his progress and his life in the bush.
