Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for FARAJA)
6/28/2016 - Last night it was like a meeting for the wild elephants to come and meet at the stockade water trough. They came to the stockade waterhole in very large numbers, with young babies too, making the Keepers quite anxious they might push on the fence and get in to the compound. However it so happened they were just thirsty, and were looking for water to quench their thirst. They finished all the water which was inside the waterhole, forcing the Keepers to release more water for them. The orphans were very noisy and all of them were pushing on his or her gate to try and to get to the waterhole to join the wild elephants there. Lima Lima and Quanza pushed one side of their wall, knocking down one post and forcing their way out! But when the Keepers came to talk to them, the babies cooled down, and their wild elephants’ friends also took off away from the stockades when they heard the commotion.
