Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for ZURURA)
10/31/2014 - It was a busy morning with 30 wild elephants at the stockade compound. The wild elephants were with Mulikaís group that consisted of Mulika, Mwende, Lualeni, Kenze, Tomboi, Madiba, Lenana, Galana, Buchuma, Orok, Nasalot and Zurura. Later Suguta and her team also showed up, making the compound even busier. Kanjoro and Mutara left the stockade with branches in their mouth since, from the look of things, they wouldn't get any Lucerne because of the congestion of the wild elephants and the ex-orphans. Only Garzi managed to scratch on the rock as the others were scared of being pushed by the bigger groups. Leaving the stockade compound was hard as some of the wild elephants tried to block the way for the orphans. The keepers shouted at the wild elephants to step aside so the juniors could make their way to the browsing field. Vuria got lost in the midst of wild elephants and the keepers had to come back for him after realizing that he was missing from his group.
