 A Quarterly Update from the DSWT/KWS SKY Vet Program - 8/18/2014
View a Printable Version of this Update



During May to July 2014 the DSWT/KWS Sky Vet program was called to handle 13 wildlife cases, predominantly from the Masai Mara ecosystem, with 1 case in the Laikipia region of northern Kenya and 2 cases within the Tsavo Conservation Area. 

  

Of the 13 cases treated during this reporting period 7 were elephant treatments, 3 lion, 1 zebra, 1 black rhino and 1 giraffe.  Eight of these cases were caused by poaching including predominantly poisoned arrow cases as well as a number of spear injuries, involving 6 elephants.

  

  

The DSWT is proud to be able to partner with the KWS in implementing this extremely successful initiative and in turn save the lives of many wild animals which would otherwise be lost.
