Lewa Wildlife Conservancy 2015 anual report

5 posts in this topic

I received the 2015 Lewa anual report.

Concerning wildlife, there are many good news: Lewa did not loose any rhinos in 2015, poaching indicators (PIKE) are decreasing in the region since the 2012 peak, and key species populations are on the increase in 2015 (giraffes, rhinos, grey zebras, buffaloes).

That is great news @@jeremie - and let's hope the lush conditions of early 2016 keep improving things.

Looks like things are going well there, good news! I do believe they know all their rhinos, and maybe their lions, but you should always be careful in interpreting population estimates without confidence intervals....

the rhinos are monitored daily and known individually ,that is a precise number

 

Grevy's zebras are also followed closely and known by rump photos
