Nursery Unit  July   10, 2017 Godoma consistently shows a strong maternal nature these days especially with the younger baby elephants, and as a result is very well behaved during the public visiting time as she likes to watch the goings on. Today during the public visit after the first group had finished their milk, some were jostling over access to the water at the small troughs whilst others played on the piles of red, loose soil. The playfulness of Malima, Tamiyoi, Jotto, Ambo and Enkesha on the soil attracted the attention of the two little boys, Musiara and Sattao. They ran and joined in the games on the soil, with Godoma standing to the side and watching. Everyone watched as Godoma got down on her knees to help support Musiara when he failed to get up on his own. He used her side to support him and she held him with her trunk as well so eventually he managed to get up and we were all left thinking what a wonderful matriarch Godoma might be in the future.
