Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for BARSILINGA)
2/20/2015 - The babies awoke this morning in the company of a film crew who are making a programme to raise awareness about poaching. The crew obtained some good footage as the orphans were in a happy and active mood. They paired up to have fun; Oltaiyoni and Olsekki chased each other back and forth, and Mbegu faced up to Kauro trying to prove that she is strong enough even to take on tough boys like him. Barsilinga sized up Tundani whilst Nelion was with Lemoyian, who is one of the few not alarmed by his long tusks. The naughty Kithaka was up to his old tricks trying to find an opportunity to have a go at the film crew. Luckily the keepers kept their eye on him and managed to rescue the guy he was about to knock over. All the while Kamok was busy chasing the warthogs that were wandering everywhere. She chased them nearly a kilometre into the bush with her trunk raised, trumpeting loudly. Little Ndotto and Lasayen tried to follow her example but being so young they don’t really know how to trumpet yet!
