Snares on Tumaren


On October 12th we took the following photograph of one of our rangers, Mlio with all the snares that we have so far collected in 6 months of searching. Some of the snares are with small wire for smaller animals such as Dikdiks while others are enormous and intended for such things as buffalo and Eland. We have also discovered the source of the poachers wire, an abandoned fence line on our neighbor property. We have suggested that we pay to have the wire collected for them and put into a store where it can be safely managed. The neighbours are amenable and we intend to do the giant cleanup in the first week of November. Conservation laikipia
