Kenze is an orphan elephant. Born in 2004, he was rescued near a village
abutting the Chyulu Hills (Kenya) in the afternoon of December 6,
2006. Airlifted to Nairobi, on December 7, 2006, he was installed in
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust nursery. He was 2 years old.
Everyone was shocked by the pitiful condition in which the elephant
bull had arrived: stuffed ticks, emaciated to the point of death,
frightened, unapproachable and completely dehydrated. Some thought
that he wouldn't make it through the night. The care of The David
Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (TDSWT) saved him. Kenze lives today in
Ithumba among his peers called, like him, to find the wild freedom
and herds as soon as all the conditions are met for that.
