Child attacked by lion doing fine. Donâ??t forget to watch us on BBC2 on Sunday!
Thanks for your concernÂ for the young herder who was attacked by a lioness protecting her cubs. We have heard that he is doing fine, which is really great news.
I also wanted to remind you all to watch us on BBC2 this Sunday at 9pm. The programme is called Explore: The Rift Valley and we feature right at the end (as the grand finale)! So make sure you stay tuned until the end!
The Lion Guardians are all arriving in camp today for the end of month meeting tomorrow, so it is very busy here, with warriors everywhere demanding cups of tea!Â One of them has been walking since 4 in the morning to get here!
I’ll let you know how the meeting goes after tomorrow.Â Â
Hope you all have good weekends!
I shall be watching. In the meantime the image of warriors everywhere with cups of tea will keep me going.
i so sorry that i won’t be able to watch the fabulous bbc program because i am here in the u.s.a.. please post some pictures of the show and what issues and topics the show has to say.
do the warriors drink their tea black or with sugar & milk? what about coffee? or a cool beer? actually beer only makes one more thirsty.
Good to hear…….have a splendid weekend!
Unfortunately, here in the USA I only get BBC, not BBC2. I looked all through the upcoming shows and it is not on. I would love to see the show, as I’m sure many others would, also. I wonder if BBC would provide you with a master DVD and you could make copies and sell them. Even if you sold them for $20 US ea., plus postage, I’ll bet you would make a lot of money. If any of you ever give talks anywhere, you could maybe sell them there, also. Since you are non-profit and doing such a great service, hopefully BBC would be willing to do that. Just a thought….Hashi
I enjoyed the Rift Valley programme. There were a lot of other items first…the plight of malnourished children in Ethiopia, a dedicated photographer teaching children outside Nairobi how to be photo journalists, disappearing crocodiles, bloody tribal conflict after the elections, cattle rustlers….but after all that, the success story was saved to the final 5 or 6 minutes…the ray of sunshine was the Lion Guardians.
I just watched the Rift Valley program. It was very good and it was great to see Antony and the Lion Guardians tracking a lioness. It looked like when you were tracking the lioness, she was actually tracking you. The whole program was great and informative on topics we don’t get to see a lot of on the news. Unfortunately it’s not available to view on the BBC website if you are outside of the UK. With a little bit of computer tricks I was able to watch it online 😉
I had a friend in the UK record the BBC episode and mail it to me in the US. I just finished watching. It just reiterated for me what a fantastic project Lion Guardians is. I hope that this program gets replicated throughout Kenya and all other areas where there is human-lion conflict. Thank you also for taking time everyday to keep us up-to-date on what is happening in the LG world!!
