 A September Report from the Aerial Surveillance Unit - 10/16/2014
View a Printable Version of this Update



September, gripped by the peak of the dry season, has proven to be a busy month, with our teams together with The Kenya Wildlife Service preoccupied with elephant veterinary treatments, similar to this time last year.   Most of these injured elephants have been sighted from the air. This month a number of shooting platforms were discovered from the air and then destroyed by the KWS/DSWT  antipoaching ground teams.  Seven elephant carcasses were spotted by our aerial support and reported to KWS during the month whilst frequent herds of cattle were also sighted in both Tsavo East and West National Parks.  The dry season presents these challenges more than any other time, together with heightened incidents of both charcoal and logging operations. It’s been a busy month for the Aerial Unit, but a very rewarding one knowing that together with the support of the Kenya Wildlife Service we have been able to save numerous elephant's lives.
