Another black rhino birth on Lewa!
On Monday 16 October one of our Rangers, Rajimen Lesakut, reported seeing Ndito, a 16.8 year old black rhino with a new calf. This is great news and brings our number on the Conservancy to 51.
Ndito is one of the pioneer female black rhino in Lewa. Up to date she has given birth to four calves, Seiya (7.4 years), Mama C (4.2 years), Calf 3 (not yet named - 2.1 years) and last night she gave birth to her fourth calf. She was found with her new calf this morning by the patrol team while on their daily routine on the south west side of the Conservancy.
Both mother and calf are doing well. They will be monitored closely and offered security by our men for their continued survival in Lewa.
