View a Printable Version of this Update



During January 2017, the DSWT hosted 4 fully sponsored school trips to Tsavo West, 3 wildlife video shows, donated 25 long-lasting learning desks and erected a new beehive fence made of thirty modern langstroth hives.

As elephants continue to be squeezed into smaller areas and cut off their migratory corridors, cases of human-elephant conflict are on the rise. In last two months, Tsavo has experienced the most frequent human-elephant conflict over the years. On two occasions, the conflict led to loss of human life. By erecting beehive fences around farms in Mtito-Andei, the DSWT has remarkably reduced incidences of elephants raiding community farms.  In January 2017, DSWT erected a new beehive fence covering a length of 0.6km in Kyusyani village bringing the total of the DSWT’s beehive fence to over 3km.
