The SWT/KWS Mt Kenya Wildlife Veterinary Unit responded to a number of emergency wildlife cases requiring urgent veterinary intervention in Laikipia ecosystem and Mt. Kenya region during the month of June, 2019.
Due to heavy rains experienced in the month of June, food and water in the region were adequate for wildlife and livestock. This resulted in a reduction in the number of human-wildlife conflict cases, which led to fewer cases being reported for veterinary attention. Some of the veterinary activities attended to included treatment of an injured mountain bongo at Mt. Kenya game ranch and treatment of injured adult female elephant at Naibunga Wildlife Conservancy, as highlighted in the full report below.
