Satao, Kenya’s biggest elephant, killed by poachers.

News reports this morning have confirmed that one of the world’s biggest elephants was killed by poachers in Kenya.

Named Satao, the iconic tusker elephant was known for it’s humungous tusks that were so large they almost reached the ground. He was also one of the last of his kind.

He had been living in the Tsavo East National Park in northern Kenya but had become a target for poachers, who were using GPS and mobile phones to track him.

For 18 months, the Kenyan Wildlife Service joined forces with the Tsavo Trust to monitor Satao’s movements using aerial reconnaissance and ground personnel within his known home range.

Despite this, poachers were still able to reach him and in March, the 50-year-old elephant was shot by poachers using poisoned arrows. Vets rushed to the scene to treat him and he went on to make a surprise recovery.

But in May, an elephant carcass was discovered by June Richard Moller, Executive Director of the Trust, and on Friday it was confirmed that the dead elephant was indeed Satao.
