Helping elephants and zebras

About the Tsavo Conservation Area

The team at Tsavo Mobile Veterinary Unit operates in collaboration with the Kenya Wildlife Service and is led by veterinarian Dr. Poghon. They:

  • treat animals targeted by poachers, and increasingly those injured through conflict with humans, an issue of growing concern, as human populations expand into areas previously home onto to wildlife, bringing elephants and people into ever closer proximity to one another.
  • rescue orphaned infant wildlife, including elephants, rhinos, giraffes and zebras. They bring these animals into the care of the Sheldrick Trust, so they can be raised and returned to the wild when grown.
