Nursery Unit  July   13, 2012 Later today we received a phone call from the Voi Stockades saying they had found an abandoned baby elephant, who they had been monitoring for two days. After deciding to capture the lone calf, the Keepers kept her at the stockades overnight whilst they awaited a plane for her transfer to Nairobi. The Voi Keepers told us that she was in good condition and that she was accepting milk. The next morning the rescue team arrived at Voi to collect the calf who is approximately one year old and is suspected to be a victim of poaching. At around 2.30pm she arrived at the Nairobi Nursery and settled into her stockade. Tano was the first to welcome the new arrival who was very happy to see her.
