December update from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
Please find the foster parent monthly update summary below and attached watercolour, but this is just a brief outline of some of the events from this past month. To view the Keepers Diary, along with recent photographs and entries more specific to your fostered orphan please be sure to access the Keepers Diary link which can be found at the end of this update. December 2006 will always remain a memorable month for Kenya, dominated by rain, rain and more rain, rendering the entire country awash, and disrupting well laid tourist travel plans countrywide. However, whilst excessive rainfall disrupted human activity, causing chaos, it has been a bonus and a blessing for wildlife, and particularly for Tsavo, which had previously suffered 3 rain deficient drought years. This, in an already arid semi-desert environment is always a recipe for additional hardship, particularly for elephants, who have an inefficient digestive system and require a great deal of varied browse on a daily basis to maintain condition. The Nursery Unit It follows that December 2006 has been party-time for our orphans, all of whom have enjoyed an unprecedented period of feasting, and especially for the Voi Group, who no longer had to travel far on a daily basis in order to fill their bellies. Brim-full waterholes have provided swimming pools,where all the Tsavo orphans, whether in Ithumba or Voi, can immerse themselves, with just the tips of their trunks protruding like periscopes. They have enjoyed playing in endless puddles, tobogganing down slippery slopes and romping around with each other in the mud and rolling around in dampened soil.. The only orphans who did not welcome the rain were the four Nursery miniatures, Shimba, Galdessa, Lesanju and Lempaute, who had to spend long periods incarcerated in their Night Quarters to prevent them from catching a chill and going down with the dreaded pneumonia. All have also been cutting their first molars, causing the usual stool related concerns, but by month end all are thriving, gaining weight, and are happily settled as an enchanting foursome who hang out together during the mornings, Lesanju taking on the Leadership role, but who spend quality time with the older Nursery inmates in the afternoons. The main Nursery event during December was, of course, the arrival of 2 year old Kenze, and the subsequent intensive care needed to retrieve this new arrival from the jaws of death, followed by a long struggle to calm him down. He was airlifted to the Nairobi Nursery on the 7th, having been rescued in the late afternoon the previous day near a village abutting the Chyulu Hills of the same name. After being driven to the Voi Stockades for the night, he was airlifted to the Nursery the next morning. We were shocked by the pitiful condition of this young bull. Every square inch of his body was literally plastered in ticks of every shape and size and he was emaciated to the point of death, obviously having been starved of milk for a very long time. He also had a suppurating wound on his penis which needed urgent attention. However, he was far too aggressive to handle, determined to settle a human related score for having been deprived of his elephant family, so there was nothing we could do until he collapsed, as we knew he would. Meanwhile, the Keepers in the Taming Stockade with him had to become pretty adept at climbing the escape platform to avoid being flattened! The anticipated collapse occurred in the late afternoon, and only then could we begin to remove the ticks, clean the penis wound, and insert the life-saving Dextrose drip into an ear vein. We really didnt think he would even make the night, but he did, litre after litre of Dextrose and Saline slowly reviving him, while cooked Oatmeal and Coconut cakes mixed into a ball with milk were placed in his mouth by hand in an attempt to get some milk into his system. By noon the following day he regained full consciousness and with the help of 6 men, was lifted to his feet, after which he wobbled into a far corner, remaining vehemently anti-human. Fresh greens were brought to him, which he ate avidly, but almost two more days past before he condescended to take milk from a bottle offered through the bars of his Stockade. It took five more full days before we could risk letting Kenze out with the other Nursery elephants when Kamboyo seized the opportunity to try and assert dominance by shoving him around, something he will regret later when Kenze settles that score. Lenana, on the other hand, who has similarly suffered Kamboyos shoving, instantly befriended him, as did all the others, including Zurura, who has since become his best friend. By month end Kenze could rise from a sleeping position unaided, and every day that now passes, finds him a little better, and a little stronger. Now he tolerates the presence of the Keepers, (but does not seek it), and can be trusted around the mudbath visitors. PooPete 11 months
Neither the doctor nor the midwife wanted Heather to feed our babies herself. She insisted though - and won! She did agree though to wean them both at the earliest possible opportunity. Neither of us liked the idea of a 'feeding bottle' so we pressed ahead with spoon feeding and drinking out of a glass. Here is Pete at eleven months skilfully managing to drink from a glass of milk. There was, I may say, an adult hand just out of sight of the camera, ready to grab it - but it wasn't needed. This picture illustrated an article entitled 'Why Bother with a Bottle?' that I subsequently sold to 'Better Health'!
