Our iconic Aussie is in danger. Please help us keep them around forever.
After unsuccessful attempts to locate his family herd Wakarei was transported to the Elephant Transit Home where he will be looked after and raised until he is old enough to care for himself. Calves of this age are extremely vulnerable without the support & guidance of their mother and family herd.
Once he has demonstrated to ETH staff that he has the necessary skills that he needs to feed on natural vegetation & has formed some bonds with other age related young orphans plans will be put in place for a small group release back into the wild of a National Park in Sri Lanka.
