Q3 2021 Enonkishu Conservancy Highlights

Kisaru and 2021 Cubs
Kisaru and 2021 Cubs

HIGHLIGHTS FROM JUL-SEP 2021

  • Two male wild dogs were seen throughout the quarter, always observed by rangers from Chali Chali camp, with a few other reports from neighboring herders.
  • Kisaru, a female cheetah who put Enonkishu on the map after raising 6 cubs in 2019, gave birth to a second litter in September near the same site she had her first litter. She emerged from her den with 4 cubs, but the next day was found with only 3 (Figure 1).
  • Barikoi, a male lion may have been usurped by some younger males (Figure 2). We are anxiously awaiting to see how it plays out.
  • Grey crowned cranes flocked to the spring below Memusi dam in groups as large as 253 (Figure 3).
  • As a result of the dry season, bomas have been moved to the designated grazing block to reduce tracking (Figure 4), Eleven calves were weaned, seventeen were born, and one young heifer was killed by a lion from the Herds for Growth project.
  • KENTTEC team deployed insect repellent necklaces on the conservancy herd to reduce black and tsetse flies and further reduce the contraction of trypanosomiasis (Figure 5).
  • Tracking devices were piloted to monitor the effectiveness of the grazing plan (Figure 6)
  • Ranger appreciation day was held at the end of July (Figure 7).
