Collaring the Heart of the Herd
In the heart of our conservation efforts at Saving the Survivors, a remarkable story unfolds—one that speaks of dedication, expertise, and the profound connection between humanity and nature. Step into the world of Dr. Johan, our head veterinarian and founder, as he leads a mission to safeguard the majestic matriarch of an Elephant herd.
The video which you can see on our social media captures a momentous scene as Dr. Johan orchestrates a meticulous operation from a helicopter, darting the matriarch with precision. This procedure, while delicate, is a vital step in our ongoing commitment to protect these gentle giants.
🌳 Guardians of Ecosystems: Elephants, as keystone species, hold the key to maintaining ecological balance. The collaring process, showcased in the video, is not just about monitoring movements; it’s a critical measure against poaching and a pledge to preserve the landscapes, corridors, and biodiversity they call home.
👩⚕️ Surgical Precision: Watch as the team carefully fits the collar around the matriarch while she rests peacefully. A stick placed in the end of her trunk ensures an open airway, allowing her to breathe comfortably during the process. It’s a testament to our commitment to the safety and well-being of these incredible beings.
🌅 A Majestic Awakening: The video captures the awakening of the matriarch, now adorned with a collar that will guide us in understanding and protecting her and her herd. Witness her graceful return to the embrace of her family—a powerful symbol of resilience and hope.
🙏 The Power of Your Support: None of these endeavours would be possible without the unwavering support of our incredible community of donors. Your generosity propels us forward, making tangible differences in the lives of these remarkable animals.
