Thank you to everyone for their fantastic comments on the previous blog – Antony is back! Your encouragement and support is as always greatly appreciated. We would also like to welcome another new face to the Lion Guardians project. Liz Carabine has joined the ever growing Lion Guardians team to manage the project as well as to provide additional project development support.
Liz has a BSc in Biology from University College London and an MSc in Ecological Management from Imperial Colleg,e and has worked as a consultant specialising in environmental assessment of land management plans. She also has plenty of experience carrying out conservation work in East Africa including facilitation of a Wildlife Management Area adjacent to Katavi National Park, capacity building for a community based organisation in Tanzania and exploring herbivore dynamics in the group ranches of the Maasai Mara.
Liz is a great addition to the Lion Guardians team, and her experience and skills will help the project continue with its successful community lion conservation work, and push the project forward and into new areas that are still experiencing serious conflicts with wildlife.
Welcome to the project Liz!!
