 The DSWT Aerial Surveillance Unit May 2015 - 6/19/2015
View a Printable Version of this Update



The DSWT Aerial Unit enjoyed a fairly quiet month during May with fewer poaching incidences in the protected areas, particularly involving snaring and poisoned arrow poaching.

Also as another positive result of widespread but patchy rainfall there have been a number of sightings of large herds of elephants from the air. On a few occasions groups of more than 500 strong were sighted in different locations across the region, among them some big bulls and cows with very small babies; an increase in elephant calves has been wonderful to witness in the past months.
