During the course of the month of December the following areas were patrolled by the Mtito de-snaring team: Mtito River, Tsavo River, Chullu gate, Finch Huttons, Mangerete and the Tsavo triangle.
43 SNARES COLLECTED
Even though it is the rainy season the poaching levels have not declined and instead have remained at the same level. We lifted 36 snares at Mangerete and 7 large snares around Finch Huttons
We spent 14 days patrolling the area around Finch Huttons and in the future will visit the area frequently in order to try and control the level of poaching taking place in the area.
