Nursery Unit  July   29, 2012 At 11am this morning we received a call from Angela Sheldrick with a message from the Voi Keepers that there was a young elephant calf in need of help. Three of the Nairobi Keepers were soon sent down to Tsavo to help with the rescue on Taita Ranch. This young calf was suspected of being yet another poaching victim as several poached elephant carcasses were found in the area. This new baby arrived at the Nairobi Nursery around 4pm. The calf happily guzzled his milk formula in addition to rehydration salts as he was very dehydrated. This new male is approximately 1 year old and has been named Nyika. He was put in his new stockade next to Makireti, who was the first orphan to come and greet him.

Balguda with Nyika
