This report just in on Baby in Surin. Even though we were all hoping to see a visible improvement in her eating habits and weight gain, that is not the case. At least, according to Alex Godfrey, project manager, The Surin Project/The Elephant Nature Park Foundation, Baby does not look worse.
Alex was encouraged to learn from the Royal veterinarian that he had made a house call to see Baby. Following his examination the veterinarian felt that Baby was doing better.
Our offer to send Baby to the government hospital, all expenses paid, is still an option. Now that the Royal veterinarian is involved, Baby’s case should be viewed as high priority. Much thanks goes to Alex. He has done a stellar job of bringing attention to Baby’s health condition, including meeting with the veterinarians and the Governor to discuss her case. I am sure he will continue to keep us posted.
