WATCH: amazing move of four forest elephants in Cote d'Ivoire
A month ago in Western Africa we began our jumbo mission to take four elephants which were in conflict with the rural communities of Daloa, the third-largest city in Ivory Coast, and transfer them to Azagny National Park.
You may have been following our team’s efforts and the ups and downs of this last-chance operation through my posts. Now, this video above will take you first-hand through the various stages of our dangerous and difficult mission: exhilaration, sadness, laughter, misgivings, strong emotions and eventually the return to the wild of these four elephants saved from slaughter.
I am more than happy to share this video with you, without your support we would never have been able to undertake such a large-scale operation.
Without your words of encouragement, this operation would have been a great deal more difficult.
Thanks to you, four elephants from one of the sub-species most threatened with extinction were able to be saved.
I would like to thank you on their behalf.
In their new home, a protected verdant forest, I’m sure you’ll keep watching over them like guardian angels.
