We have exciting and hopeful news to report as we approach the end of 2016. Nabulu had cubs recently!
The cubs are doing well and we are excited to see the population grow with the arrival of these little ones. We currently monitor 50 lions in our Samburu study area.
It is with great sadness we announce that a young male lion was shot dead recently in Samburu, northern Kenya.
We have been unable to confirm the identity of the lion but suspect that it is Loiwotwa, a young nomadic male we have been monitoring for the last three years.
Our team continues to patrol the area together with conservancy rangers. We are grateful to everyone for the support during what has been a challenging time for our team.
We are excited to announce that we were named Best Wildlife Conservation Group in Kenya as part of the African Excellence Awards for 2015.
According to Corporate Vision, who gives these annually, these awards are dedicated to the African people and firms that have done great work to carve out a place for themselves among the most exciting in the world.
Being given an award by the corporate sector pleasantly surprised us, and we hope this will put lion conservation in front of a key new audience, especially as we strive to engage more local Kenyan firms in supporting wildlife conservation.
