Adventures Across America with Supporters and Friends

May 31, 2016 | Categories: Donors, Staff | 2 Comments

Yesalai had never even see a horse up close -- and now he's riding one on the beach in northern California. He was a natural!

This month, we came to the United States for a two week safari through Chicago, Washington DC, and California. It was an unforgettable trip -- primarily because of the people we met along the way. First and foremost, thank you to everyone who came to our talks, took us sight-seeing, or showed us their generosity and support. It has given us renewed motivation and encouragement!

Below is a small collection of the many wonderful adventures we had. This was Jeneria's fourth trip to the U.S. -- he's become a seasoned pro. It was Yesalai's first trip to America, and certainly an unforgettable one.

Samburu and Turkana livestock herders inspired by 7th Lion Kids Camp

May 27, 2016 | Categories: Education | Leave A Comment »

An ostrich puppet brings a huge smile to Nkiyok's face.

This year, we wanted our Lion Kids Camps to focus on a new demographic of young Kenyans: livestock herders, or “lchokutis” in the local Samburu language. This group spend most of their time in wildlife areas looking after their family's livestock, yet have limited, if any, exposure to conservation education and training. By engaging herders through our Lion Kids Camp programme we hope to have an immediate positive impact on wildlife. >Read about the importance of engaging herders in conservation

Following the success of our first herders camp in February, we were very excited to host a second camp in April that brought together 26 young herders from across four community conservancies in northern Kenya.

As with previous camps, ...

Junior the Lion Kid

Junior with his hero Jeneria.

This is the story of Junior, the 13-year-old “Lion Kid”. This boy’s story is worth sharing because Junior represents the bright outcome of conservation education. Junior hails from Westgate Conservancy in Samburu, northern Kenya.

Junior attended our Lion Kids Camp in 2014, which sparked Junior’s interest in conservation. By the end of the Camp, he was telling anyone who would listen that he wanted to be just like the warriors from Ewaso Lions.

Now, every time Jeneria and the field team head into Samburu National Reserve, Junior – who lives in a village bordering the Reserve – is watching, waiting for any chance to jump in their vehicle to go see lions or head back to camp with his new heroes.

He is quite a character and...
