On the 5th of July the team met with the senior warden and the company commander of Tsavo West national park. During the discussion the bush meat trade and cattle grazing inside the park were highlighted as the most pressing issues which need urgent attention. The park management promised its support in provision of rangers who will accompany the team on patrols. We have also been given 2 rooms and a store and a small office for our operations at Ziwani.
