Nusu the Elephant

The herd of 14 African elephants are having a great year - the arrival of Oku and Nguvu has given little Nusu some very welcome playmates, although he does still spend a lot of his time playing with favourite Aunt Manzi or hanging around with the young bulls Impi and Mchumba, learning important bull social behaviour.

    African Elephants are intelligent mammals who live in extended family groups with strong and complex bonds. They are famously under threat from poaching for their ivory, which - despite a global ban on international ivory sales - remains in demand in the Far East. 
    The Aspinall Foundation saved 11 elephants from an abandoned South African reserve in November 2019, where they were facing a slow death from starvation and thirst. The entire herd were moved 300km to a 15,000 hectare reserve protected by a specialist anti-poaching unit.
    Adopting an elephant with us helps to fund future rescue missions!
