The orphaned calf was sited alone by a Tour Driver on the 21st August 2013 in the Sobo area of Tsavo East National Park by a Tour Driver. The tour driver monitored the calf for a while and saw that it was staggering and in a state of collapse. Its location was passed on to the Voi Elephant Keepers who immediately mounted a rescue and having driven to the area, spotted the orphan after an hour’s search. It was very weak and easily captured.
Important Note: Thank you for considering an adoption. Each orphan needs more than one foster parent: your adoption donation will be processed by the SWT UK and Kenya to help all the orphans in our care.
