Jacob Dadi – Team leader Isaia Ndei
This month the team patrolled the trust land and the private farm land from Simon Trevor’s land through to Mr. Nutter’s land. In addition we patrolled the Athi River and the Mtito River up streams.
During the months operations we did not collect any snares. The amount of wild animals being found in these areas continues to increase. We are hoping to get some rainfall in the coming months, and for this reason many people are attending to their farms. The team tended to the trees on the trusts land replacing any that have been damaged by elephants that have been in the area. Furthermore we had to replant most of the garden as it had been trampled by the elephants. We have erected an electric fence around the garden to prevent this happening again. The seedlings in the Trust’s nursery are doing well and we hope to be able to distribute them to the surrounding communities in the next couple of months.
