Aptly named after her beautiful albino appearance, Khanyisa’s name means “light” or “sunshine”. Although her unique albino traits bring a little ray of sunshine to the everydays of the HERD team, this little girl has been through such a tragic experience. She was found trapped in a snare with severe injuries, with no sign of her herd anywhere. The HERD team took her into their care, giving her a new chance.
As Khanyisa’s wounds started healing under the care of HERD, her curiosity and excitement about life started to grow as well. Her health has been improving every day, and with your continuous support, she can thrive and grow up to be a healthy, happy elephant.
By purchasing the Discover Wildlife bracelet, you can adopt Khanyisa and help her continue the journey towards healing and discovering the joys of life. The proceeds from the bracelet support HERD’s efforts towards saving and rehabilitating orphan elephant calves, making you an active part of an important change.
South Africa’s first dedicated elephant sanctuary, HERD opened its doors to provide a unique, adoptive family structure for baby elephants in need. Offering a second chance to elephants who have been displaced due to poaching and land conflicts, the organisation offers unique rehabilitation programs centred around integration. We made the promise to the animals in their care to raise them as long as they needed help and to prepare them to one day return to the wild.
