A Friend for Nicky

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy welcomed another rhino orphan. The young rhino was orphaned just over a month ago when poachers killed his mother on Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The calf was immediately moved to Lewa and is being hand-raised alongside Nicky. (see Rhino of the Week: Nicky) Their keepers say the two have become quick friends- feeding, playing and even sleeping together!

The new baby has yet to be named. Lewa has a fundraising program which entails the privilege of naming the orphans. For more info visit: Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
