Adoption Sirimon the elephant

Wings for Animals has been in close contact with The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust since our origin. We have been bringing pantyhoses from colleagues for a long time; with these tights the caretakers of the shelter tie the blankets around the tummies of the elephants. They need the blankets to protect them selves from sun and cold, unfortunately they do not have a mother anymore. Since rope does rub on their bellies and tights do not, this is a nice and cheap solution!

When we delivered the tights personally, we met a lot of the rescued orphaned elephants, as we did Sirimon. Like last year, we also virtually adopt ‘our boy’ this year and continue to follow him closely.

The rescue of Sirimon can be seen on this video:
