Suni was not only orphaned from her mother when she was just eight months old, but also critically handicapped in an axe attack, which led her to eventual demise.
In her memory Game Rangers International have established the Suni Memorial Fund to support the ongoing and essential protection of Zambia’s elephants to prevent the same fate falling upon other elephants like Suni.
Suni holds a special place in the hearts of many. Her story is a poignant reminder of the harsh reality facing Zambia’s elephants. Not only was Suni robbed of her family as a young calf but she was also deprived of a future when she was so brutally attacked. We must ensure the same fate does not fall upon others like Suni by providing wild elephants with adequate protection!
GRI works closely with the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) to protect Kafue National Park through law enforcement, research, anti-trafficking, community outreach and education so that Zambia’s elephants and other wildlife can live secure from poaching and other threats.
We need your help! Please contribute to this vital work and ensure Suni’s legacy lives on.
