Mopane's latest Weight measurement, June 2018

Six months have passed, since orphaned elephant Mopane arrived at HESC in a fragile state. He was so small, weighing in at only 78kg. 
Now, in the month of June, he has weighed in at a healthy 152KG
We will continue to update this dedicated blog on monthly basis, to track his growth and weight gain in photo’s, in one easy place!
Thank you for taking interest in his well-being!
We are always seeking assistance towards Mopane’s daily costs, which are extremely high, if you would like to help in any way, no matter how small, go to or email:
