Translocation: Rescued elephants returned to the wild
SEE ALSO :Rescued elephants ‘doing great’The Reteti Elephant Rescue & Rehabilitation Centre is located within Ngilai West group ranch of Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy (NWC) in Samburu East Sub-county of Samburu County. The rescue facility was commissioned on July 26, 2016, following a series of appraisals and a MoU with KWS after a proposal submitted on January 2014. KWS said the release of the elephants is a first of its kind in Kenya owing to the fact that both the Reteti rescue facility and the Sera wildlife conservancy are purely community projects managed by community members. To date, the facility has rescued over 47 elephants, one black rhino, one greater kudu and one zebra foal.
