The month of May saw the aerial unit spending considerable time answering reports of injured elephants and monitoring their progress, whilst tracking and rescuing orphaned elephants and continuing patrols over the Tsavo Conservation Area. The aerial team now prepares for the busiest months ahead as the dry season hits Tsavo. Yet with two vet units, eight ground teams, three Cubs, a Cessna 185 and a helicopter, the team is in a good place to provide the most effective protection to the Tsavo area whilst offering ongoing support to the KWS teams on the ground.
