THE STORY:

****Thank all your for donations to date.  They have been used to help pay for the vaccines needed for the distemper outbreak that was impacting local wildlife.  All vaccinations were administered successfully!***

BUT THE JOB IS NOT DONE...

This poor baby elephant watched as its mother was slaughtered.   Dr. Clay was called to assist.  The poor creature was incredibly traumatized and he did all he could to help. Unfortunately, due to lack of funds and no dedicated Elephant rehabilitation organization in Botswana, he had to let it go back into the wild...alone.  We can only hope another herd adopted it.  Dr. Clay does not have the facilities or the funds to keep elephants or other animals.  He responds 24/7 to wildlife emergency situations as a vet and does the best he can.  But YOU can help make his job easier and their chances of survival better by making a donation.

Chobe Wildlife Rescue Botswana is a wildlife rescue organization in Botswana led by an extraordinary individual who had dedicated his life and all his resources to saving wildlife in Chobe, Botswana. I learned about Dr. Clay Wilson's quest via facebook and it touched me deeply and I REALLY want to help in some way!

Read more about his amazing story at: http://chobewildliferescue.org/sites/chobewildliferescue.org/files/clay.pdf

Chobe National Park in Northern Botswana, is perhaps the last large bastion of wildlife foothold in the world. This unique and fragile ecosystem supports over 160,000 elephants. That is over half the population of elephants in the entire world. It is truly rich in many other wildlife species as well.

Twenty kilometers to the northeast lays Zimbabwe. The devastation and almost complete eradication of wildlife and environment is present there. To the east lies Mozambique, which has been decimated by years of civil war and millions of land mines planted, which have eliminated the large herds that once roamed there. Zambia to the north has pockets of wildlife, but the nonviable economy and corruption have left most of that land desolate. These areas are not far away from Northern Botswana, and greedy ivory poaching syndicates have set their eyes on this wonderland called Chobe National Park. There is nowhere else to go.

The goals of Chobe Wildlife Rescue (CWR) consists of saving and rehabilitating injured and sick wildlife. In the field, Dr. Wilson (Director of CWR) has treated many animals suffering from gunshot wounds to debilitating disease, and many other injuries sustained in the wild. Most are treated in the field and continue to have a wonderful second lease on life. On many occasions animals have to be hospitalized for intensive veterinary care. CWR's goal is to rehabilitate them back into the wild. CWR has had many successes, and some failures, but in all cases pain was relived and love given and received freely.

With a refusal to see any animal suffer, CWR and Dr. Clay, have a policy in cases of man-made trauma (such as snares, gunshot wounds and vehicle accidents) to take whatever steps necessary to treat or relieve suffering. Anti-poaching efforts are clearly needed, as poaching syndicates widen their circle of geography and vulnerable species, plying their wildlife killing and illegal trade business.

The conservation, wildlife veterinary work and anti-poaching efforts, that Chobe Wildlife Rescue provides in Botswana, is vital. Your support and assistance is needed to help CWR continue and to grow

National Wildlife Humane Society is a conservation ally of Chobe Wildlife Rescue. The Chobe Wildlife Rescue Founder/Director, Dr. Clay Wilson, serves on the NWHS - Wildlife Advisory Council. Please consider assisting Chobe Wildlife Rescue's vital wildlife efforts, in Botswana Africa, with your financial support through National Wildlife Humane Society
