Nursery Unit  September   28, 2012 As soon as the orphans were let out of their Night Quarters, Mutara, Shukuru, Sities, Kihari and Tano all rushed to the new baby’s stable, previously occupied by Kihari, eager to welcome and greet little Rukinga. Mutara tried to open the door to gain access, but could only reach in with her trunk. At 8 a.m. the new baby was allowed out to join the other orphans, who all surrounded him, each one vying to be as close as possible. The newcomer was delighted to again be amongst a loving herd and the focus of their attention! He attended the noon mudbath, taking his milk eagerly, and now enjoying the attention of all the human onlookers!
