When Moyo, a baby elephant, was crossing Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe in 2016, she almost drowned after she was left behind from her pack. She was rescued and accommodated at a sanctuary called Wild is Life.
Because Wild is Life has an elephant nursery and Roxy took care a lot about her, she would spend her whole day with her, even sleep beside her, for Moyo to feel comfortable there and eventually trust her.
Now Moyo is all grown up, healthy and playful, and has conquered her biggest fear of swimming. Swimming comes as a natural skill to African elephants, but due to her childhood events, she forgot this life skill.
Moyo has also persuaded President Xi and his wife Madame Peng to visit Wild is Life, who were really excited to meet her. The President also showed his concerns about the ivory problem.
