Mount Kenya Mobile Veterinary Unit Report for February 2023

Published on the 15th of March, 2023

In February 2023, the Mt Kenya Wildlife Veterinary Unit attended to 20 cases requiring urgent veterinary intervention in the Laikipia ecosystem and Mt. Kenya region. These comprised 4 rhino cases, 6 elephant cases, 5 bongo cases, 2 Rothchild’s giraffe cases, 1 Grevy’s zebra case, 1 lion case, and 1 buffalo case.

The Vet Unit rescued a 3-day-old white rhino calf in Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The calf was too weak to keep up with its mother and was abandoned. Given the prevailing drought its mother was not able to produce enough milk. However, we are happy to report that the calf is now doing well at the Ol Pejeta nursery.
