A two year old female orphaned elephant was flown to the Nursery today from the Chyulu Hills, but died several hours later having arrived in a very bad state. Bhaawa has changed a lot since being separated from Kenia’s older group. A lot of the time he prefers to be alone, feeding apart from the others. Sabachi, who has always been a very close friend to Shira, Olare and Enasoit is accompanying Bhaawa now and Kilaguni is also trying to join up with the two, but Bhaawa and Sabachi do not want him because he is prone to biting tails. Today Bhaawa led the others towards the thickets, watched by the Keepers, who thought they were merely off to browse, but instead they joined up with Kenia’s Senior Group.
