Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for GARZI)
10/30/2015 - The stockade compound was flooded by elephants early in the morning, both wild elephants and ex-orphans; Wendi and Wiva were present. As soon as the juniors were let out, Sities and Mutara went to greet Wiva. When it came time to leave Mutara dodged the keepers and returned to spend time with Wiva. At one time Mutara tried to offer Wiva her breasts to nurse but by then Wiva was nursing from her mother. Later the keepers discovered that Mutara was missing and so returned back to the stockade to collect her. When the sun became too hot Teleki, Kithaka and Barsilinga went to relax under a tree, from time to time Teleki would put his trunk in Barsilinga's mouth. At mud bath time, the sun was still hot and all the orphans participated in wallowing. Shortly later, the juniors were joined by Half Trunk, a wild elephant and Zurura. After mud bathing, Kithaka, Lemoyian, Narok, Zurura and Vuria occupied different trees for scratching as Orwa, Laragai and Turkwel settled for soil dusting. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse at Kanziku area. Kanjoro teamed up with Bongo in browsing while Sities kept close to her friend Garzi. Kithaka browsed with Barsilinga and Lemoyian as the rest scattered across the field. Rain clouds could be seen in the evening but the rain remained elusive.
