November has been wet and green, with a combination of heavy and light rains experienced throughout. The rains have caused the seasonal streams to flow and the permanent rivers to increase in water volume. The vegetation has regenerated as a result, providing ample forage for wildlife populations, which are in good condition.
The impeccable health status of many species enabled the planning and execution of fitting monitoring aids/collars on chosen animal species. Hirolas, elephants and a rare white reticulated giraffe were all collared during the month, enabling KWS to track animal movements, to aid protection and enhance learnings. During the month the Meru Vet Unit also treated a lion for an eye injury.
