On the 14th of October 2014 we sent a DSWT team to the Milgis in Northern Kenya to rescue an orphaned baby elephant that had been reported to us.  However, in addition to the elephant was another unlikely package - two tiny ostrich chicks - found and rescued by the Kenya Wildlife Service.

Pea and Pod have grown up with our orphaned elephant herd ever since, and are now an intrinsic part of our Nursery Unit.  They provide endless hours of entertainment for the elephants who love to charge them, hug them, and positively maul them, although taller than their elephant peers in this short time these long suffering feathered friends remain very protective of the herd!   It is a most unlikely combination which has formed an enchanting inseparable friendship.
