However, vigilant Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) Rangers spotted him just in time, prompting a swift response to save his life.

The scene of Mapia’s rescue on November 2, 2017, painted a poignant picture against the backdrop of Tsavo East National Park’s arid landscape.

Found near the Galana River amidst the world’s most extended lava flow, Mapia’s desperate condition underscored the severity of the drought gripping the region.

With uncertainty looming over Mapia’s chances of survival, a coordinated effort between KWS rangers and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) ensued.

Ground teams rushed to the site while DSWT prepared for an airlift, understanding the critical nature of every passing minute. Despite the challenges, Mapia was safely transported to the Nairobi Nursery for intensive care.

Under Angela’s watchful eye at the Nursery, Mapia’s journey to recovery began. Despite facing numerous setbacks, including collapsing and weathering from the harsh conditions, Mapia’s resilience shone through.

Each week, he grew stronger, eventually reuniting with his companions in the lush forest.

Mapia’s story serves as a beacon of hope amidst the devastation of the 2017 drought, which claimed over 350 elephant lives in Tsavo alone.

His miraculous rescue highlights the importance of dedicated care in ensuring the survival of vulnerable wildlife.

As Mapia continues to thrive in his newfound home, there remains hope for his eventual reunion with his family in the wild.

His journey stands as a testament to conservationists’ tireless efforts and nature’s resilience in the face of adversity.
