This pic really shows what magical beings Elephants are! Read the quick details below.
August 2012: Graduating from the Nursery to a Reintegration Unit is a milestone moment for any of the orphans in our care — and it really helps to have a herd of friendly faces to help new graduates settle into this next phase. So, when Makireti, Ishanga, and Kasigau made the move, we were delighted to find a welcoming committee of wild-living orphans standing attention when the truck pulled into Ithumba! We chalk it up to elephant magic that they knew to be at our stockades to greet the new arrivals, and their presence certainly helped the trio feel comfortable in their new home.
(And things have really come full circle: Makireti, Ishanga and Kasigau are now all living in the wild and act as “mentors” to still-dependent orphans!)
