A man called Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua drives a huge truck containing 3,170 gallons (12000 litres) of water to fill dried-out watering holes in the National Park. The animals, including elephants, zebras, water buffaloes, antelopes keep waiting for Mwalua in the hope that they will be able to quench their thirst with the water he brings.
The parched territory of Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park paints a grim picture of how living in the extreme conditions can be. With the long, dry spells in summers, there’s barely any hope of rainfall and the wildlife gazes with utter helplessness in their eyes.
His Facebook page has photos of how animals flock to drink water after he reaches the spot and fills the dried-out holes.
Mwalua is doing a noble service, but he is not sure what will happen to these animals if he misses out on delivering water. He is concerned about how global warming is affecting the climate of the entire world where places are remaining dry almost all throughout the year.
The newsviewsweb.com salutes Mr Mwalua for the brilliant work he is doing. We hope more people like him join the force to conserve animals in different parts of the world. He is a true inspiration.
