Lion Guardians need to learn some new skills in order for them to carry out their work. Yesterday we showed new Lion Guardian Solonka learning how to track collared lions using radio telemetry equipment.
Another of the new things they need to learn is how to use a Global Positioning System unit to mark the locations of different things that they find. For example, they will use the GPS unit to record the point where they have found lion tracks, or a lion, or a place where a carnivore has broken into a boma and killed livestock.
Here Lion Guardians Lenkina and Koikai are teaching Solonka, the new volunteer, how to use the GPS unit.
