Nursery Unit  July   21, 2012 The day began early with news of a lone elephant calf in Tsavo East National Park, which had been spotted by the electric fence attendants who alerted the Voi Keepers. Around 10am the rescue crew left for Voi accompanied by the NBC film crew who were documenting the rescue. By 4pm the rescued elephant calf arrived at the Nairobi Nursery without incident. The calf is a young male of about one year and has been named Bomani after the area of his rescue. He is not in the best of health yet the Keepers were all on standby to help him through this delicate stage.
