The Matriarch Project I With our organisation’s mission always in mind, we believe that every elephant in our care deserves the best, no matter their age.
In the last few years, The Care Project Foundation has seen an increasing number of geriatric elephants being placed under our care. Our geriatric rescues come to us with a list of medical conditions, such as cataracts, gout, ulcers, and colic.
Our geriatric rescues are given 24-hour care and supervision of a veterinarian with health checks and daily care plans. We also carefully monitor the diet for our older elephants and provide supplements for them to aid digestion.
