Mataya Meets the Herd

“Alone and suffering with machete wounds at only 2 months old, fragile rescue, Mataya, needed some focussed keeper care before being ready to meet the other orphans." Conservation Behavioural Advisor, Lisa Olivier narrates Mataya’s first meeting of his new family, the Nursery Herd.


Watch as Mataya meets his new family.


This small, vulnerable elephant is safely in the care of GRI’s Wildlife Rescue Programme where he will be cared for until he is ready to once again live wild and free.
