On the 7th February 2006, the Nairobi Nursery received an 18 month old orphaned baby bull, again from Amboseli National Park, whose mother was found dead having suffered from an illness, presumably drought related. This bull calf is known to have been without his mother for at least 3 weeks, ever since his mother from the OB Study Group was found dead. He spent the first week after his mother’s death still within the OB herd, but when the Amboseli Research Unit found the calf again two weeks later he had joined up with the AA family.
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.
