Nursery Unit  October   7, 2017 Last night at around 8.30pm the Nursery received another baby from Lake Jipe in Tsavo West. She is less than two years old and has been named Lumi but she is very thin and in very bad condition. Mbegu, Ndotto, Lasayen, Kuishi and Godoma were all very welcoming and crowded around her stockade before they left for the forest. She was upset when they all left to join their friends in the forest but she soon settled to eat the browse in her pen. She seemed to settle in very quickly in general and drank milk from a bottle at noon. Ndiwa and Mundusi were moved to a different stockade on the other side which Ndiwa took very well. She is such an easy going girl and settled into her new room very well, but Mundusi gave the keepers a hard time about going into his new room and it took awhile to get him used to it!

Lasayen can be very welcoming
