Naramat Has 4 Cubs

Jul 31, 2017 | Categories: Community, Lions | 5 Comments

We are really excited to announce that Naramat gave birth to 4 cubs in Westgate. This is the 3rd time she has had cubs (in different areas), and also the 3rd time in the past 10 years that a lioness has given birth and successfully raised her cubs in this community area. This has not been easy – it has taken years of community engagement, meetings, wildlife safaris with community members, daily patrolling by our team of warriors and scouts, quick response to conflict incidents and round the clock lion monitoring.  Most of the community in Westgate have now embraced lion conservation and everyone knows Naramat and her cubs.

Such great news…When we visited with WCN in Maya, we didn’t know how many cubs! May Naramat stay fertile and keep increasing the lion population!!!
