SWT/KWS Ziwani De-Snaring Team Report for August 2019

Published on the 15th of September, 2019

The Ziwani Team operates in the southern sector of Tsavo West National Park, as well as the neighbouring Taita wildlife ranches.

These savannah plains are dotted with low hills and valleys and are home to a wide variety of wildlife and historic World War 1 battle sites. Illegal activities encountered here include snaring for the bushmeat trade, ivory poaching, livestock encroachment and cutting of trees for timber and to make charcoal.

The report below provides an overview of the activity of all our De-Snaring Teams in August 2019, with a more detailed description of the Ziwani Team's operational activities in the period.
