Baby Elephant Adopted In BTS’s V’s Name Is Adapting Well To 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 orphan elephant rescue and wildlife rehabilitation in Kenya. The baby elephant, Roho (whose name means “spirit” in Swahili), had lost his mother to illegal hunting 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.
Check out some photos and a video clip of baby Roho below!
It's been exactly 2 months since we adopted Roho in Taehyung's name for his 7th debut anniversary ✨
