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.

Seen wandering alone by inmates 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. 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.

She is a loving and gentle little character, not overly fond of humans, but very fond of "Nasalot" who sleeps in the next door to her at night.
