Fodder Delivered to Knysna Elephant Park
A donation of fodder was made by Peter Liebenberg and Gert Lategan from Loch Vaal. The feed was collected as quickly as possible by us when we heard of the plight of these elephants. Knysna still remains in a critical state, predominantly due to lack of rain in catchment areas.
The feed was delivered today by Gift of the Givers to the "Knysna Elephant Park" where the bulk will be fed to the elephants, some will be distributed to other areas in need to feed; cattle, sheep and wild game.
Alex Vipond, Park Manager for over 10 years, stated that farmers are losing their animals due to food shortages. The elephants are driven up to on a daily basis to analyze the food situation.
