Lion Guardians

Masai-1

We are collaborating with Leela Hazzah and Panthera to bring the successful Lion Guardians  model to Ruaha. This is an innovative approach to lion conservation which centres upon training and employing the local lion-hunters as conservationists, therefore giving them a real benefit from carnivore presence. It has worked very well in Kenya, and in 2012 we will be testing the approach in Ruaha, involving other tribes such as the Barabaig as well as the Maasai. It is an extremely promising step for human-lion coexistence around Ruaha, and we will keep you posted on its progress!
