Over the last month, the volunteers and staff at the Elephant Refuge have been taking care of some of the recently planted huge trees on Project 4.
We have the best free fertilizer produced by our herd of 22 elephants every day of the year. Elephants digest and absorb few nutrients from the food they eat, only around 40% of what they eat. The results is nutrient rich dung! As seen in older posts, everything starts by collecting the elephant dung and leaving it in the sun for a while so it can break down and dry out. Then, it is shred up, and finally transported to the site where it is to be used as fertilizer.
A lot of new trees have arrived in Project 4 to create a perfect lush habitat for elephants and other wildlife. It is always a fun activity and full of surprises, take a look at the team here.
