At about 1pm the office received a call from The Amboseli Elephant Trust staff about an orphan having been spotted alone in Amboseli. The rescue Team went on their way with a French film crew in tow. The calf was found about 20 km from the airstrip and captured by the Keepers before being flown back to the Nairobi Nursery. The calf arrived at about 8pm and was named Kitirua after the swamp in which she had been found.
