Nursery Unit  July   22, 2017 The new orphan from Tsavo West was originally fighting and very stressed but settled overnight with the help of Enkesha. With all the noise from next door, Enkesha became suspicious and unsettled, and walked all over the room putting her trunk between the bars to comfort the little one. As soon as their trunks touched, the new orphan became calm as if Enkesha was communicating to him that everything was okay. He then lay down to sleep and Enkesha moved her mattress next to the wall separating the two stockades so she could sleep next to him.

It was extra cold this morning and Musiara and Sattao needed extra blankets to keep them warm out in the bush. When Kauro is in his playful mood his two favourite orphans to play with are Ndotto and Mbegu. Today he was in a really playful mood and he engaged Ndotto in wrestling games for much of the day.

Enkesha was so welcoming of the new baby
