Hippos breaking into bomas

The drought is so bad in the Mara that hippos have broken into our fortified bomas to get at the grass inside!! If the local forests continue to be cut down, more animals and communities will suffer. Pictured here is our foreman Alfred assessing the damage in order to make repairs.

Using some ingenuity and the AKTF vehicle, our incredible Boma Team fixed the boma broken into by a hippo!! So proud of the Boma Team for the repairs—and of our community partners who call in AKTF to mitigate human-wildlife conflict, instead of taking matters into their own hands and hurting the animals.
