Kauro came to the Trust on January to on the 30th of January after a report from Sera Conservancy via the Lewa Conservancy about a rescued elephant calf. This approximately 1 month old calf had fallen down a well in Sera, and was fortunate enough to be rescued in time, although not before a jackal or small predator had bitten the off the tip of his trunk.
