Problem Animal Management Unit (PAMU)
In 2006, KWS established a mobile rapid response team (PAMU) which has its base at Nanyuki. This is a highly mobile unit that is dispatched to various areas within the country due to the intensity of human wildlife conflict. Currently the team has the strength of 41 personnel. The team is headed by Warden 1 with a Assistant Warden 11 as deputy. The team can be split into four teams and simultaneously deployed to high conflict zones to beef up the local PAC teams.
The role played by PAMU contributes to the following Strategic Objectives for Community Wildlife Service department
