The Christmas holidays might be upon us now but there are still a small group of people who for them is still business as usual , a good example are like Sabah Wildlife Department’s Wildlife Rescue Unit ‘s Veterinarian Dr Uma and Wildlife Rescue Ranger Mr Arnold .
As the rest of us gather around with our family members in the warmth of home , these two unsung heroes will be spending Christmas taking care of a recently orphaned baby Bornean Elephant.
Meet, Malu a female Bornean elephant(Elephas maximus borneensis) .
This friendly and loveble 1 month old calf was rescued from Malua Plantation less than a week ago (19th December 2019) as it was found wondering alone while his whole elephant family were not in sight.
With a good health and tender loving care from the staff of the Wildlife rescue Unit , lets hope for the best for Malu .
Malu is currently placed at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre(SORC) for further veterinary care
We , Would like to take this opportunity for a big shout out and a huge thank you to The Malaysian Palm Oil Council and The Orangutan Appeal UK for funding the great work that The Sabah Wildlife Department’s Wildlife Rescue Unit does , saving Wildlife everywhere in SABAH.
Great work Dr Uma and Arnol, sorry you both will miss Christmas this year with your loved ones .
We thank you for your dedication and passion 👍🏾👍🏾says Sabah Wildlife assistant director Dr Sen Nathan in his Facebook Page.
