Funded by our international supporters and headed by KWS Vet Dr Domnic Mijele, the Unit will work together with the Kenya Wildlife Service teams, local communities and tourism lodges and other conservation bodies to receive reports of distressed wild animals. Fully equipped, the Unit has a custom-designed vehicle to ensure the team can mount a rapid and effective veterinary response to any injured wild animals from aardvarks to zebras, reducing the response time compared with flying a Vet in from Nairobi which can delay treatment by hours.
