Fishan’s Story

It has been an incredible journey of rehabilitation and recovery which took a lot of hard work, time and team effort, but Fishan persevered and survived the odds. He got stronger and stronger by the day and is now back with his herd, walking through and foraging in the bush during the day, although now with a slight limp, and loving his time swimming, more than ever.

Fishan is a sensitive soul that stresses easily, although his seemingly carefree demeanor often fools one. He is a very smart elephant who doesn’t forget easily, is very independent and is usually the elephant that will take an alternative route, just to be different.

He is a protective figure and helps the Matriarch, Tokwe look after the calves. Fishan is tall, but slender with short tusks.

Your fostering helps us to provide for your foster elephant’s needs! This includes our essential and sizable team of dedicated elephant carers who care for, support and protect the herd day and night. During the day, the carers walk with the herd through the bush for 12 hours, enabling them to roam, forage, swim, sand bathe and play in the wilderness, while at night the homestead provides safe shelter with the carers’ accommodation alongside the elephants. Our team see to the cleaning of the homestead, land management, dam maintenance, and so much extra work behind the scenes.

Funding goes toward providing the elephants with safe shelter, medical support and dietary supplementation. You can foster an elephant for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, giving them the joy of supporting an elephant and the world of elephant conservation.
