About the campaign
Safe Passage for Lions — As the human population soars, lions are running out of space and experiencing increased human-lion conflict over livestock. Ewaso Lions is focused on working with local communities to create areas where people and lions can coexist, by securing lion corridors whereby lions can continue to thrive without persecution. At the same time, we are helping local people and their livelihoods by reducing their livestock losses.
Our goal of $20,000 will support our work which includes:
• Warrior Watch: a network of Samburu warriors who prevent lion killings and promote lion tolerance across northern Kenya.
• Mama Simba: The “mothers of lions”, our women’s group educates and empowers Samburu women.
• Lion Kids Camp: A multi-day conservation education camp for Kenyan children that inspires a new generation of wildlife leaders.
• Lion Dispersal Research: Using high-tech GPS collars to track lion movements and identify the areas that are key to lion survival.
