The Tsavo Mobile Veterinary Unit attended to 19 Cases in September, 12 of these cases involved elephants and 7 cases in total were related to poaching.
The drought situation is still dire in the entire Tsavo Conservation Area. Many of the big herbivores, especially elephants, have been seriously affected by the drought. Several deaths have been reported, and there has also been an increase in calf abandonment. Fodder is increasingly becoming scarce, and many water pans are completely dry. The dry spell is expected to persist for the better part of the year.
