Voi Unit  October   31, 2017 This morning Sola, who was rescued on the 7th October, collapsed at 6am as the other stockade dependant orphan elephants were leaving their night quarters to begin their day. The swolling under his abdomen had become worse and had extended to the whole abdominal area. He was put on a drip and assisted to his feet at about 10am. He browsed slowly for some hours before again collapsing at 4pm. Sadly despite all of our best efforts he died at about 6pm, becoming another victim of the severe drought that has hit Tsavo.

Today Tawi again tried to mate with Kore but was prevented from doing so by Ngulia who Tawi’s saw intentions and chased him away.
