Voi Unit  October   6, 2017 The three orphans, Ajali, Pasaka and Nguvu have not yet returned to the orphan herd following their disappearance with the wild her yesterday. Several searches were conducted for them during the course of the day with Ajali being seen among a different wild herd than the one he had ran off with. He heard the keepers calling him and lifted his trunk in greeting but did not follow them. The wild herd he was with had congregated to assist a wild female that had just given birth and there was a lot of activity around her making it difficult for the keepers to try and separate Ajali from the wild group.

In the afternoon a report came in of an orphan elephant that had been seen continuously over the last two days. The calf had gone into Jipe Primary School who reported the incident to KWS who came to capture the calf. The Voi rescue team was then mobilized and air lifted to the school by the Trustís aircraft to look after the calf until it could be flown to the Nairobi Nursery. The plane carrying the calf (Lumi) and the Nairobi keepers landed in the evening.
