Nursery Unit  October   9, 2013 It was an extremely tragic day in the Nursery, for we lost our little Empaash last night soon after midnight. He finished all his milk feeds throughout the night, but after the midnight feed struggled to breathe and passed away. He died of pneumonia, the only consolation being that at least he died surrounded by love rather than drowning in lonely isolation at the bottom of the well into which he fell within the Amboseli Conservation Area.

Meanwhile the new calf named “Asanje” was greeted first thing in the morning by Kihari, Ishaq-B, Naipoki, Sonje, Quanza and Murera and took milk for the first time at 11 a.m.
