#Kenya – Enjoy these spectacular sights on line while you can’t see it in person
Dear ATCNews Readers,
First of all we hope you are safe and sound.
This is a dramatic and unprecedent moment. MWCT and Campi ya Kanzi are doing all they can to guarantee the safety of their wonderful teams. Maybe in this confusing moment reading about MWCT’s monthly report and seeing Campi ya Kanzi’s safari images can be a welcome distraction. We like letting you have a virtual tour of the amazing African paradise we are the custodians of.
Looking forward to more serene times and in transforming your virtual visit to a real one.
COLLARED LION, MARTI – During a game drive, one of our MWCT collared males were spotted at Kanzi Conservancy this week enjoying some much-needed shade from the hot sun in the afternoon. Read our article on our conservation team re-collaring Marti last year, and how this data helps mitigate potential human-wildlife conflicts and protect his species.
CONSERVATION PROGRAMME – Our Rangers and Simba Scouts continue to patrol the area from illegal practices, monitor wildlife and remain on track with their target distances.
HEALTH PROGRAMME – Our Health team continues to provide healthcare services available to a community of nearly 19,000 members.
