Relocation of Nursery herd to Lusaka

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation

Tuesday 12th July 2022 was a milestone occasion for us and our ground-based conservation partners, Game Rangers International (GRI), as they relocated the entire Nursery herd at the Elephant Orphanage in Lilayi to Lusaka National Park.

Relocating six young elephants, even a short distance, requires careful planning and a lot of manpower. Watch this incredible operation unfold as the elephants take their first steps into their new home.

In its new location, the Nursery will complement and enhance the interactive educational content on offer at the DSWF funded Wildlife Discovery Centre which is due to open in early August.
