This incredible elephant had spent the last 50 years living in the most terrible of conditions. Wildlife SOS had planned an escape for the elephant, leading it out of captivity and back to its natural habitat.
. These kinds of rescue operations are often quite dangerous and so employ large groups of people, each with specific roles to ensure the safety of all those involved.
It may be the middle of the Second World War but these are the ultimate heroes, so it’s no surprise when they come across an injured baby goat that they adopt it and nurse it back to health.
It will undoubtedly be a story they can tell their grandchildren, and perhaps a moment of respite from the reality that surrounded them.
Brush Fire Koala
This Koala was in desperate need to be rescued from a bushfire, in fact, you can see how its fur is covered in ask.

Fire, Electrical Wires, And Saving Animals
Here a shed had caught on fire, and when the firefighters arrived on the scene, a man was there going in and out of the shed pulling animals from the flame-engulfed shed.
The fire was not to only hazard this man was dodging, as there was an electrical wire that had come down in the wreckage. The firefighters were able to take over and ensure the animals were brought to safety without the man risking his life re-entering the burning shed.
Fukushima Animal Rescues
The Fukushima nuclear plant disaster was the worst in Japan’s history, with people having to flee the area to avoid nuclear poisoning.
One man stayed to help the animals in the area. When asked why he put his life in danger to help these animals he said, “They told me I wouldn’t get sick for 30 to 40 years. I’ll most likely be dead by then anyway, but I couldn’t care less.” This is the spirit of someone who puts others before themselves.
