BTS’s V‘s fans recently adopted a ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇd baby elephant in his name, and according to an adoʀᴀʙle update, he’s doing well in his new home!
In June, V’s African fanbase Taehyung Africa adopted a baby elephant in the idol’s name by donating to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which runs an ᴏʀᴘʜᴀɴ elephant ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ and wildlife rehabilitation in Kenya. The baby elephant, Roho (whose name means “spirit” in Swahili), had lost his mother to ɪʟʟᴇɢᴀʟ ʜᴜɴᴛing by poachers.
According to international news reports and a recent update from Taehyung Africa, two months after his adoption, Roho is adjusting very well to his new home and family—and is even “fiercely protective” of his new family members.
BTS V Africa ¹¹⁷/SLOW (@AfricaTaehyung) Tweeted: “It’s been exactly 2 months since we adopted Roho in Taehyung’s name for his 7th debut anniversary ✨
Our playful baby has really adapted to his new home and family, he’s fiercely protective of them and even has some fun new roles in the group 😀”
