In a swift and compassionate response, the SWT/KWS Mara Veterinary team came to the aid of a distressed elephant mother in the Mara North Conservancy after receiving a report on April 24 about an arrowhead lodged in her ear.

Facing challenging terrain, the veterinary team and a ground crew from the Mara Elephant Project and their helicopter undertook a two-hour trek to reach the injured elephant. The location, a small hill surrounded by volcanic boulders, posed accessibility issues.
