On 19th September 2015, KWS Officer Bernard Rono, who heads the SWT-funded Meru Mobile Veterinary Unit, reported having received a baby male reticulated giraffe estimated to be just one week old, which had been rescued by KWS rangers on the Meru National Park boundary. The fate of his mother remains a mystery, but the location where he was found happens to be an area bedeviled by human wildlife conflict.
Kiko cannot be adopted at this time. Any donation you kindly choose to give using the option above will be directed to our Orphans' Project, supporting the care and long-term protection of all the orphans.
