Lion Guardian Mokoi has again saved the day in his local community by helping track and find over 100 lost sheep and goats. The animals had wandered off in search of pasture and water, which is becoming scarcer every day, and the local people were very worried they would get attacked by lions or hyenas. The community were all very happyÂ that Mokoi found their animals, and praised him for his work.
Sadly we have not experienced good rain for the last three months and this water shortage is leading the community to be pessimistic about their future and the future of their livestock. The land is extremely dry and in some areas there is hardly any grass left.
At least the Lion Guardians are feeling positive about their work – helping out herders by finding lost animals that might otherwise be attacked, and trying to reduce problems with carnivores as much as they can.
Please, if you think you can support us by making a donation, this will be greatly appreciated by all of the Guardians and the communities they help. Your donations pay the Lion Guardians’ wages, help buy equipment and train new Guardians among many other things. Without the donations we receive through this blog, we would not be able to continue with the project.
Thank you for any support you can give us, from all of us here in dry Maasailand, and thank you to all of you who have donated to us already.
