Pilenanka Sitiyo volunteered as a Lion Guardian in the Ilchalai area back at the start of the project in 2006, and showed great promise, but was just beaten by Lenkina who still holds the position in that area. Now we are pleased to see him again, and he has shown his dedication to the project by moving his family and boma all the way over to Old Donyo Wuas so that he can work as a Lion Guardian in this area.
There are often problems with hyenas in the Ol Donyo Wuas area, and Pilenanka has been working hard to improve the local livestock enclosures, as well as helping find lost livestock, which is a particular problem during the dry season. Pilenanka can read and write well, and has been helping new KLCP biologist Kylie get to know the area, as well as translating for her, with his knowledge of English and Swahili.
