8/21/2013 - Precious baby Ajabu woke up in a pathetic state this morning, dull and refusing her milk. She was immediately put on life support, which continued throughout the day, but died at 8 p.m. surrounded by a grief-stricken human family who loved her unconditionally, as did all the other Nursery elephants. Yet, there was no time to mourn at length, for yet another needy orphan, rescued from the Sobo Area of Tsavo East National Park, who was also said to be in a critical condition, was already on its way to the Nursery, having been rescued by the Voi Elephant Keepers. This orphan, a yearling female, came in with a large swelling under the belly (believed by the Vet, who was summonsed to take a look, to be as a result of malnutrition). The new baby, believed to be another poaching victim, was named “Mashariki” the Swahili word for “East” since she was rescued from Tsavo East.
