Integrating green and grey infrastructure in the wild lands of northern Kenya is coming into increasing focus for Ewaso Lions. The future of lions now not only depends on where people live and navigating safely through the landscape, it now also hinges on the effects of mega projects that are set to cut through our study area.

In March, in partnership with the Grevy’s Zebra Trust, our joint Landscape Infrastructure Advisor Sarah Chiles and Ewaso Lions’ Research Manager Toby Otieno travelled to attend the inaugural African Conference for Linear Infrastructure and Ecology (ACLIE) held in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Centred around linear infrastructure, namely roads and rail, energy, power lines, canals, pipelines, and fenc...

Jeneria on geo

Jeneria’s breakneck speed, passion and efficiency inspires us all every day, and is helping to build up the next generation of those who want to be just like him. We salute him, and the world salutes him too.

This October, Jeneria's life's work was the subject and feature of Geo Magazine in Germany.  Thanks to friend and incredible photographer David Chancellor, not only is there a stunning image of him on the cover page, but the magazine also includes a 6-page main feature article on what he has done to secure the future of lions by promoting coexistence between them and the people that live alongside them.

We love Jeneria’s humility and laser focus on his work. When Shivani told Jeneria of this new exciting occurrence, he...

Lined with lion jigsaw murals, kanga steamers and Ewaso Lions Banners, the welcoming archway drew 400 guests into the our camp to celebrate the achievements of the decade. The lion population in our project area has tripled, and more community members than ever before are involved in the task of building coexistence between lions and people. There were so many reasons to celebrate on August 25th, and celebrate we did. The day began with the blessing of Samburu elders sprinkling milk over the camp grounds, followed shortly by Mama Simba ladies whose songs rang out in the midday heat.

Culminating in Shivani’s moving tales, the speeches that followed pondered days long past, lions lost and challenging times, and how the team pulled...

Male Lion Shot and Killed

A male lion was shot and killed recently. We do not yet know the identify but we fear it might be Loiwotwa.

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.
