‘World’s loneliest elephant’ Kaavan airlifted to Cambodia following Cher campaign

Animal experts have sent off Kaavan, dubbed the “world’s loneliest elephant”, from Pakistan to his new home at a sanctuary in north-western Cambodia.

After languishing in a zoo in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad for years and a prolonged campaign by American singer Cher, Kaavan is being airlifted on a Russian cargo plane towards the much-needed company of other elephants.

Kaavan’s handlers are taking more than 200 kilograms of food including bananas and melons for him to munch on during the journey.
