Truck schedules and business are forgotten when African truckers spy a thirsty baby elephant stumbling alone down a highway. After feeding the dehydrated elephant all the water they had, they notify local authorities and the Elephant Sands rescue group. Because taking care of even a dog-sized elephant is complicated and time-consuming, junior's now recovering in the expert care of Elephants Without Borders, where she'll hopefully be reintroduced into the wild after she's full-grown.
Although this lucky calf has a bright future ahead of her, volunteers worry others like her will face abandonment or death should Botswana's watering holes continue to shrink. Support Water For Elephants' lifesaving work on IndieGoGo!
