Sometimes people choose to help others. Especially those who can not take care of themselves. And it is worthy of respect!
Chloe Buting studied veterinary medicine in Australia. After training, she decided not to stay at home, but to help animals around the world.
She is now known as “Jungle Doctor” and among Russian-speaking users as “Australian Aibolite”.
The girl has been taking care of elephants in different parts of the world for 4 years. Since 2018, she has been part of a group of veterinarians helping animals with trunks in Thailand and South Africa. It is there that a large number of elephants suffer due to the activities of poachers and dangerous mines.
The girl treats elephants, protects them from people, and makes prostheses for them so that the trapped animals can return to normal life again and move comfortably. Near Chiang Mai, Thailand, elephants often step on anti-personnel mines at the border. Thanks to Chloe and other veterinarians, the affected elephants are now able to walk again with special prosthetics.
“High-quality prostheses allow elephants to move comfortably during the day. If they are cared for and the limbs are treated, they do not rub,” says Chloe. If not for her and the other veterinarians, the elephants would never have returned to normal. Doctors do a great job every day.
Only during a visit to South Africa did the girl manage to fully realize the danger every day threatens elephants. There, elephants are pushed back from their territories, hunted, and animals are deprived of their children. “Animals are in danger everywhere, but we’re here to help them!” the vet says.
Chloe is involved in a program to protect elephants and rhinos from poachers. Her work takes place on the border of Mozambique and South Africa. “To save the world from an ecological disaster, it is not necessary to go to Africa,” Chloe shares her thoughts. “It is worth thinking about the goods that we regularly buy: how they affect nature and where they are produced.”
