Masarie is one of the senior murrans we have working for the Lion Guardians program. His name, Masarie, was given to him when he first killed a lion. He is known far and wide for his sharp spearing skills, which enabled him to kill two lions before leaving this all behind to becomeÂ a Guardian.
Masarie is one of those assertive and motivated people, who will never just approve a point that has been put across without some discussion first. It doesn’t matter whether he is speaking in a meeting with the Director of Lion Guardians or his colleagues, the other Guardians.
He will never give up on any tiring task that is allocated to him, whether it be fixing a boma, or walking for miles to track a lion. Another of his qualities is that due to his older age he is very influential amongst the murrans, and he has used this many times to stop groups from going out to hunt lions.
Masarie is married to one wife and two young boys. Listen below to Masarie talking about lion conservation and being a Lion Guardian.
