KWS | Three suspected poachers gunned down In Tsavo as Ethiopian Immigrants seized in Amboseli.

Three suspected poachers have been gunned down and four firearms with 81 rounds of ammunition recovered in two separate incidents in the last one week.

In a third unrelated incident, a joint Kenya Wildlife Service and police team seized 95 suspected illegal male immigrants from Ethiopia last night at 2am on the Amboseli Namanga Road. Plans are underway to arraign them before the Kajiadop Court this morning.

The three unidentified suspects, who were on a poaching mission inside the expansive Tsavo East National Park, were shot dead after a shoot-out with Kenya Wildlife Service personnel, yesterday at 4.30 pm.
In this incident, three AK-47 rifles and 80 rounds of ammunition were recovered.

Also recovered were three pieces of ivory. One suspect escaped from the shoot-out with serious injuries. Police from Voi have visited the scene of crime and are continuing with further investigations into the incident.  A follow-up operation is underway.

In another wildlife crime related incident at Ndonyo Wasin in Samburu County, KWS personnel recovered a G3 rifle and one round of ammunition. This was recovered following interrogation of two suspected poachers, including a woman, in police custody.
KWS has strengthened its law enforcement capacity and enhanced collaboration with other security agencies to address poaching. Much of the success attained in apprehending criminals and recovering illegal trophies and firearms is attributed to information provided by the public.
We appreciate this public support and remain committed to relentlessly fighting wildlife crime in all its forms.

Undeterred Perilous Crossing the crocodile infested rivers.  Many wildebeest loose their lives

The  annual Maasai (Masai) Mara /Serengeti wildebeest migration is not about wildebeests migrating per se but rather its influence on life on the whole ecosystem.  The migration is a natural phenomenon, a never ending milling of over 2.5 million wild animals comprised of about 1.7 million wildebeests, 800,000 common Zebras and gazelle, followed closely by their predators-lions, hyenas, leopards, jackals.   Hovering in the skies are thousands of vultures, the super predators. Patient in nature, the vulures survey the migrating herds descending on the dead carcasses reducing them to skeletons in a matter of seconds.  The hazardous crossing of crocodile invested Mara and Grumeti rivers is magical wonder of nature attracting thousands of human beings.  This survival of the fittest spectacle has been described at the “seventh wonder of the modern world”.  Strategic sighting of the migrating herds tend to influence the setting up of tourism facilities.
