During November, there was moderate rainfall that was evenly distributed within the conservation area, creating plentiful food and water for all wildlife species to utilise.
The SWT/KWS Mara Vet Unit, in collaboration with local partners, was able to help rescue an elephant bull that was stuck for more than 36 hours, after it had slipped into a poorly secured sewage pit. The Unit also treated an elephant and a giraffe for spear wounds, and another giraffe for an arrow injury. A young male lion was treated after being bitten by a cobra and another for bite wounds inflicted in a fight. A case of human-wildlife conflict resulted in 3 dead vultures after they fed on a poisoned carcass, while 2 vultures that were found alive, could fortunately be treated and released.
