Rhino calf rehabilitated

Earlier this month, Sera Conservancy in Northern Kenya saw the return of a much loved rhino calf named ‘Loijupu’.

Over sixteen months ago. Loijupu was found by Sera Rangers having been abandoned by his mother ‘Nairenyu’ on account of her being startled by something only a few hours after giving birth, running away in fright. Nairenyu never returned to her baby so little Loijupu was taken in by Reteti Elephant Sanctuary.  Here an incredible team of vets and keepers worked around the clock to ensure the rhino calf survived, thrived and could be released back into the wild. Thanks to their expertise, Loijupu has grown beautifully and now strong enough to not only overcome his ordeal, but return to the wild now his natural instincts have strengthened.

Huge congratulations to the joint efforts of Reteti Elephant Sanctuary. Kenya Wildlife Service and Northern Rangelands Trust for returning little Loijupu to Sera with a team of Samburu rangers.
