A young female elephant wounded and wandering around in pain was rescued thanks to Piers from Offbeat safaris and flown to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where she will be rehabilitated and released back into the wild.
This fantastic story played out just last week in Meru National Park. The young elephant was found, safely tranquilised and loaded into a light aircraft before flying to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for treatment.
The team there have named her Murera. We wish her a speedy recover and return to her habitat and family.
Many Australians saw a documentary on Daphne Sheldrick and her team who over the years have worked tirelessly to save the lives of many young elephants and return them to the wild.
