Dear friends of Ewaso Lions,
As the year comes to a close, we look back and think how 2013 was a year marked by both exciting advances and serious setbacks for lions and our conservation work. This year Loirish was killed amidst record levels of human-lion conflict in our study area. But we end the year with eight new lion cubs, each a small but important boost to Kenya’s last 2,000 lions
Northern Kenya is seeing unprecedented development, livestock encroachment, and human-wildlife conflict. Ewaso Lions continues to meet these threats head on through a growing suite of community-based conservation programmes. You already know about our unique approach to conservation: engaging and empowering local communities who live with lions.
Our request to all our friends and supporters is to please continue supporting the important work of Ewaso Lions. We are raising $12,000 this holiday to ensure we continue to make progress towards conserving Kenya’s lions and other large carnivores. This will go directly towards two key programmes: lion monitoring and reducing human-lion conflict.
Will you help us reach our goal this holiday? Your donation – no matter how big or small – will go a long way in saving lions and protecting people’s livelihoods. Together, we can try to ensure Loirish was the last Ewaso lion to be killed under our watch.
Please contact us if you have any questions – we would love to tell you more about any of these projects.
To make a donation, please visit http://www.ewasolions.org/donate/ or contact us directly.
We look forward to your continued support and on behalf of all of us at Ewaso Lions, asante!
Shivani and the Ewaso Lions team
