Help Needed

This young bull has a rare cancer in his eyes and has had procedure done before to try and remove it, unfortunately it wasn't successful in the long-term and he is constantly hanging around Elephant Sands bush lodge due to lack of sight and stress to move too far from a water source.

this was the previous attempt to remove this rare cancer and as you can see it is a delicate procedure, it is a field procedure with limited equipment and only the human eye as an aid.

The young bull can put himself in a vulnerable position around inexperienced tourists and other wild animals due to his poor condition, support is needed for us to act as soon as possible, it is a costly operation due to the distant location from any veterinary services that the Water For Elephants Trust cannot afford at the moment.
