All Lion Guardians have got their jobs by first volunteering for us for at least a month, sometimes for as long as three months. This shows us that they are committed to conserving lions, and we know that they will work hard to do this.
We have a new volunteer called Solonka working in the Ol Donyo Wuas area. There are lots of skills that the new Lion Guardian needs to learn. We went out with Solonka and Lion Guardians Lenkina and Koikai to train him in some of the necessary Lion Guardian skills.
The first new skill we taught him is how to track a collared lion. HereÂ Koikai and LenkinaÂ show him how to use radio telemetry to locate a lion.
