Nursery Unit  July   30, 2012 This morning Mutara and Makireti immediately led the orphans to the new calf’s stockade door, gathering around to greet and welcome Nyika, who happily passed close to them inside his stockade. Nyika spent the rest of the day with his new human family safely comforted in his stockade. As his dung was still very loose the Keepers continued to rehydrate him with salts in-between his milk feeds. He has not yet shown any negative signs such as loss of appetite, which is a great relief.
