2013-03-27: On Wednesday 27th March 2013, Cynthia Moss of the Amboseli Trust for Elephants (ATE), made an urgent call at midday to the DSWT's Nairobi Nursery. Cynthia's team in Amboseli had only that morning discovered an abandoned elephant calf of around one year old not far from their Research station. On closer inspection the team suddenly realised who the calf was, immediately noticing the unique albino colouring, the approximate age and that he was a young male. The calf was Jasiri' a beautiful little boy born in December 2011 to Jemima', the Matriarch of the JB family, who have been studied by ATE for years. Jasiri was the first albino calf documented in Amboseli in the 40 years the ATE have been following the elephants there.
