A Kenyan man has been driving numerous hours to Tsavo West National Park four days a week to deliver thousands of gallons of water to animals – elephants, buffalo, antelopes, and zebras – that would otherwise go thirsty. Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua, a pea farmer by trade, began doing this when he realized they had endured months without rain, and all the watering holes were drying up. The animals have become so grateful for his presence that they often crowd his truck as soon as he pulls up. Mwalua also advocates on behalf of wildlife to local school children, saying, “I decided to bring awareness to this so when they grow up they can protect their wildlife.”
