Nursery Unit  October   15, 2006 At around 1 p.m. a Helicopter landed in front of Mrs. Sheldrick’s house, bringing a new baby to the Nursery, who had been rescued from a well dug in the sandy riverbed of the Milgis Lugga in Laikipia District. This baby was about 3 weeks old and has been named “Lesanju” after a Samburu Chief who has recently died. Unfortunately, her ears had been cut by the tribesmen who rescued her who adopt this practice to identify their livestock.
