Lotus Masks has adopted Kibo the elephant!
On March 28th 2011, thanks to the support of all Lotus Masks customers, we have officially adopted a baby elephant in Kenya named Kibo.
Kibo was trapped in a shallow well dug for cattle, when discovered by two Masaai and rescued by The Amboseli Elephant Research Project at 9:00pm on February 7th 2009. He had obviously been trapped in there for a long time for his ears were extremely sun burnt.
