Q1 2021 Enonkishu Conservancy Highlights

HIGHLIGHTS FROM JAN-MAR 2021

  • There were four sightings of the seven wild dogs throughout the quarter, with the last observation made on 20 February (Figure 1).
  • Kisaru spent the majority of the quarter in neighboring conservancies but made an appearance in Enonkishu near the end of March (Figure 2).
  • Lion dynamics have been complicated throughout the quarter with a sub-group of 2 lionesses and four older cubs being the primary lions seen (Figure 3).
  • There were ten leopard sightings throughout the quarter, three of which were confirmed to be a female named “Enkishui” by a resident guide in October.
  • Bushmeat snaring and “poaching” events have been on the rise throughout the Mara conservancies, with more tactical joint patrols and snare sweeps occurring throughout the quarter.
  • Olive trees continue to be stolen from Block 13, along the Mara River. Efforts were made to distribute seedballs in an effort to reforest the area (Figure 4).
  • Ten calves were weaned and thirty-four calves were born to Herds for Growth, sixteen of which were born throughout the month of February and a new Boran bull was purchased for the Herd (Figure 5).
  • The fifth Northern Mara Vaccination campaign vaccinated 1444 cats, dogs, and donkeys 12-13 February, stretching across wild dog habitat to minimize transmission (Figure 6).
  • A major renovation to Chali Chali ranger outpost began (Figure 7).
  • The first quarterly meeting of Enonkishu’s new management company took place in January (Figure 8).
  • Tsetse fly targets have only been maintained throughout the last quarter, but careful records of treatments administered are being kept to share with the KENTTEC team.
  • Construction on the Fairmont road as well as three culverts in the conservancy began to make the conservancy more accessible to visitors (Figure 9).
  • Monitoring of electrocutions along newly installed power lines has begun (Figure 10).
