Amali means ‘hope’ in Swahili. It is a very fitting name for this little elephant, given the extraordinary circumstances she overcame to survive. Now, Amali is one of our unique orphans who will grow up at Umani Springs.

However with the rains came certain challenges as well, especially because they were not particularly widespread. This included an increase in Human-Elephant Conflict as a result of elephants wandering out of the Park in search of water and browse.
