A young baby named Kiko the giraffe was found wandering alone in the Meru National Park in Kenya. People traveling through the park spotted the baby giraffe. Those who spotted the creature knew the newborn animal was in need of immediate aid if he was to have a chance of survival.
After coordinating with the Meru Mobile Veterinary Unit, a rescue team from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) was sent to get him from the park and take him to the Nairobi Nursery.
A rescue team from Nairobi Nursery were immediately sent over to help the lonely baby giraffe. The giraffe was immediately fed and given the care he needed for survival.
They kept Kiko in the elephant stockades as he was too small to sleep in the giraffe stockade which houses much larger giraffes.
