These Orphaned Elephant Calves Were Rescued From Certain Doom
These two orphans were saved from the most dangerous of circumstances. It’s a miracle they were even found alive.
These orphans, Bada and Sorka, are both elephants, found wandering the sahara without any of their parents or other elephants to protect them. They were found dehydrated, hungry, possibly agitated. Sorka very clearly did not have her tusks. Sadly, they were clear victims of poachers.
Because of their size and power, these rescuers had a hard time retrieving the two, but thankfully, this story has a happy ending. Both are on their way to recovery in a refuge, and in this safe space, will grow big and strong.
