Quick Facts about  MULIKA
 

Gender  Female Date of Birth  March 2000
Location Found  Meru National Park
Age on Arrival  7-8 Months Ols
Comments on Place Found  Found by guests staying at Elsa's Kopje in Meru, suspected poaching victim
Reason for being Orphaned  Poaching


A female calf born approx March 2000; aged between 7 - 8 months on arrival. She was seen wandering alone by guests of Elsa's Kopje Lodge in Meru National Park who alerted K.W.S., after which this calf was captured, sedated and flown to our Nursery in Nairobi. Upon regaining consciousness, Mulika was extremely traumatized and very wild but soon calmed down with input from the other Nursery inmates. However, bent on escape, she was kept enclosed for a few days, until she was comfortable within the Nursery group, but it took many weeks for her to recover from the grief of losing her loved ones. The name "Mulika" comes from a place within the Park near where she was found.

Mulika had a loving and gentle little character at the Nursery, not overly fond of humans, but always very fond of "Nasalot" who slept in the next door to her at night. We are so delighted that now, as adults, these two friends still roam together in the same ex-orphan herd led by Yatta near Ithumba, both with their own first wild born calves, Mwende and Nusu.
