On June 24, 2018, Axel Kratel organized an evacuation of farm animals from land that was lava locked from the Kilauea eruption in Kapoho, Hawaii located in the eruption’s east rift zone on the Big Island. Kratel enlisted the help of Jake Muise and company of Kia Hawaii to wrangle the animals and Paradise Helicopters donated their helicopter with pilot and CEO Cal Dorn to fly the mission. Four cows and two sheep were saved on this day and all are making a strong recovery thanks to all of those who helped on this amazing mission which included lava, wind, rain and blistering heat.
