A miracle is unfolding at the Nairobi Elephant Nursery and the name of that miracle is Murera, a young female elephant, who owes her life to Mr. Piers Winkworth, the Manager of the Offbeat Safaris Tented Camp in Northern Kenyas Meru National Park. His Camp Guides reported the presence of this lone young elephant who over the past few days had been lying in grass at the same place. They could see that she had great difficulty getting up and was severely wounded, something that so upset their passenger clientele, that Mr. Winkworth brought her predicament to our notice and drove to Park Headquarters to seek permission and the help of Rangers to rescue the calf. Meanwhile, he had Emailed us a picture of the calf and we could see that she was just over two years of age, and as such still milk dependent. This was on the 21st February 2012. By 4 p.m. that day Murera had been safely captured and driven to the Meru Mulika Lodge airfield, where the chartered Caravan aircraft dispatched from Nairobi to collect her, had landed and was waiting.
