Rescuing the Giants: A Heroic Tale from Olarro Conservancy’s Wildlife Frontline

Embark on a journey into the heart of Olarro Conservancy, where a vigilant Patrol team recently spotted an elephant with a distressing suppurating wound behind her right shoulder.

This heartwarming tale unfolds as the dedicated team, in collaboration with the veterinary unit, springs into action to address the injured elephant’s critical condition, shedding light on the vital role of conservationists in preserving the well-being of these majestic creatures.

In the face of a septic spear wound, the team administered a precise 15mgs of Etorphine hydrochloride through a 1.5ml dan-inject dart from a vehicle. Ten minutes later, as the drugs took effect, the gravity of the situation became apparent.

The wound underwent meticulous cleaning with a combination of water and Hydrogen peroxide, followed by disinfection using the potent tincture of Iodine.

To promote healing, the wound was carefully packed with green clay.

The elephant received a regimen of Amoxicillin antibiotics and Flunixin meglumine anti-inflammatories, ensuring a comprehensive approach to her recovery.

The process concluded with a successful reversal using 36mgs of diprenorphine hydrochloride.

This narrative illuminates the crucial role played by Olarro Conservancy in wildlife conservation.
