This is Adun, he is a 7 year old Bornean Pygmy Elephant. In 2017 he was rescued from a pond that he fell into and was stuck, near Telupid, Sabah, Borneo.
He was taken to our facility where he received medical care. Sadly in 2019 he fractured both of his tusks in his enclosure.
During our BWP Team visit to the facilities this past April we realized Adun has chronic pulpits with severe infections in both tusks. We are moving forward with organizing surgery for Adun as quickly as possible. We have a team of veterinarians working together from abroad to conduct a double tusk removal . Because of Adun’s small size we are having dental tools custom made for his tusk canal which ill aid in the complete removal of fragmented pieces of tusk and infection. We are preparing for general anasthesia (GA) and have already purchased medications and large elephant size soft bedding to place Adun on for the surgery.
Borneo Wildlife Preservation are working directly with The Borneo Comservation Trust and the Sabah Wildlife Department to deliver this life saving surgery , but we need your help!
