Jabu the Elephant, as seen on Animal Planet's "Dodo Heroes" is one the world’s most beloved African bull elephants and needs your support! His needs are large and continuous as his limb injury needs further aggressive treatments. HE NEEDS MORE HEROES. PLEASE HELP.

Jabu was badly injured when he was attacked by a wild bull elephant where he lives in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. Jabu now has a damaged wrist joint and osteo-arthritis at the young age of 31 years and will perish if we cannot control the effects of arthritis and stabilise the joint. Innovative and vet-approved therapies beyond his leg brace are being planned and are urgently required. 

It takes giant sized medical care to help Jabu, which means we need worldwide support from heroes like you. For example, we need to buy an XL x-ray machine not available in the country.  We have partnered with a team of experts (including Colorado State University) planning Jabu's stem cell therapy, preventative drugs, orthotic soles, and physio therapy exercises. 
Anything raised beyond medical care and equipment costs will be set aside for Jabu and Morula's long-term care in a sanctuary setting. Doug and Sandi Groves have devoted their lives to providing best quality of life for rescued elephants. It will take even a larger volunteer human herd to help Jabu.
