View a Printable Version of this Update

The Scouts from the West Gate Conservancy in Samburu who rescued both Lempaute and Loijuk got to meet them again this month. The Trust sponsored their journey down from Samburu to Nairobi in order for them to spend time with the Nursery orphans, and particularly the two orphans they had saved, Loijuk and Lempaute. They were able to learn more about the Project first hand and got to spend quality time with the Nursery orphans and their Keepers. They were all amazed at Loijuk’s progress, a far cry from the emaciated calf they had last seen loaded onto the rescue aircraft nearly a year ago. Lempaute enchanted them too, as she was clearly attached to her Keepers staying close to them at all times, but quick to play and frolic for her captivated audience.
