Laikipia Nature Conservancy – 26th June

Just received from LNC-

Elephant poached this morning just under Makenas lodge. Sadly we cannot get to the elephant to verify. There are too many guns in the area but our staff at the lodge heard the gunfire , the elephant screaming and later the hacking of the tusks so we are pretty certain. Lots of shooting in another elephant area near our red dam but could not access to verify as many weapons in that area. It’s incredibly sad to think how many more have died that we do not even know about.

Approx 10,000 head of illegal cattle. Mostly bomaed within LNC.
