From humble beginnings 22 years ago, of only a few rescued wild orphaned animals in our back yard, we have grown into a fully-fledged animal sanctuary committed to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-wilding orphaned elephants and other animals in Zimbabwe.
Each month, our neo-natal and young orphans require constant care, veterinary attention and LOTS and LOTS of milk! The whole world is upside down with the Coronavirus outbreak and we have not been spared the fallout from this pandemic. We have had to close our doors to visitors to keep our animals and staff safe. Sadly this means we have lost this income stream that afforded us to feed our animal family.
For only $5 you can buy a bottle of milk to feed our elephants Bumi, Kadiki, Moyo, Limpopo, Amira, Tess, Mana, Unity, Coco and Johnnie as well as their buddies Ranger and Valentine (the kudu), Wildbur (the bush pig), Chunky and Felix (the bush babies).
We are asking YOU to please help us ensure these special orphaned animals can keep enjoying the milk they need to enable them to grow big, healthy and strong so they can be released back into the wild.
Each bottle of milk is made of a very specialised hypoallergenic formula, coconut oil, vitamins and spoons full of love (the love is free). On average per month, we hand feed Bumi and his buddies 5111 bottles per month (breakdown in the next post) and so we are trying to raise $50 000 worth of bottles for a few months whilst we are shut.
We appreciate any donation, no matter how big or small! One of our guiding philosophies here at Wild is Life is "A Little by Little, A Little Becomes A Lot" and with your help, it really can. Even if you are unable to donate, simply sharing our campaign on your social media can make an impact in helping us reach as many people as possible.
In return for your kindness, expect a very exciting email from us. Also we'd love it if you joined us on our Facebook or Instagram page so we can keep you up to date with how they are doing, what they are getting up to, all the milk they are guzzling and to hopefully provide you with some content to put a smile on your face!
