Nyalou joinded the DAKTARI Family in 2016 as an orphan that 4 had been left alone by his mom for two days in the bush. He was in desperate need for help and without any hesitation, Michele cared for him and bottle-fed him. With a lot of patience, dedication and love, Nyalou got healthy and strong. He was eventually released on the reserve where he now roams wild and free. All our volunteers and visitors get the chance to see this magnificent animal up close. He makes DAKTARI very special!
Nyalou often comes around camp very often, and children learn about this beautiful story. On April 14th, we found him in quite a bad state, struggling to walk. He is limping and needs a vet check as soon as possible. Being injured and not being able to properly walk makes him very vulnerable to predators such as leopards and hyenas. He is the only one of his species on the reserve and we need to help him!
The funds will allow our amazing wildlife vet Dr Peter Rogers to travel to DAKTARI, dart him, perform the necessary exams and provide the medicine he needs.
