10/19/2013 - Another tiny lone orphaned elephant seen heading towards the railways line and busy Mombasa road by KWS personnel stationed at the Buchuma Entrance to Tsavo East was rescued and held at their ticket office to await the arrival of the rescue plane from Nairobi. The baby bull, estimated to be only a month old, was flown to the Nursery that afternoon, and appeared in reasonable health upon arrival. He was named “Bahati” (Swahili for “lucky”).
