On 30th January a call was received from the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), swiftly followed by a second from the Trust funded Mara Mobile Veterinary Unit, pertaining to an orphaned baby elephant whose progress had been monitored for over 2 weeks in the Oloisukut Conservancy within the Masai Mara, in the hope that she would be absorbed back into her herd.
