Wass and two little friends arrive at the Nursery

A baby elephant was rescued from the remote Northern Frontier in Kenya, having fallen down a man-made well in a sandy river bed. Named Wass this little calf was rescued alongside 2 baby ostriches, who have now all found a safe home at the DSWT Nairobi Nursery.

DSWT rescuers quickly set out to retrieve the calf, and were met with two other unexpected orphans: tiny ostrich chicks.

“All young elephants are extremely fragile, not least when they have experienced being separated from their mother and we are therefore currently providing Wass the specialist care he needs.”

Wass will likely see the wild again — after regaining his strength for a few years in the nursery, he will be slowly reintroduced to the wild, along with the other elephants he’s living with now.
