WCS sponsored an anti-poaching mobile response team in the Tsavo area of Kenya.
The team provides front-line protection for wildlife through the removal of snares and the arrest of poachers.
Over the past 15 years alone, the DSWT’s Anti- Poaching teams have removed in excess of 150,000 illegal snares and arrested more than 1,700 poachers.
