Mara vet stranded!

This week we were lucky enough to have a vet from the Mara, Asuka Takita, visiting our camp, as well as Living with Lions director Laurence Frank. Asuka had come to find out more about what we do here with the Lion Guardians, and the Living with Lions program. It was great to have her…

Saving wildlife with the communityâ??s youth

Yesterday I mentioned to you that I have been elected as the treasurer of a community youth group. The name of this group is Ewangâ??an Community Development Association (ECODA).

New role in the community

I am now back in camp, after my time off from work with the Lion Guardians. Even on my days off I have been busy working with the community, as part of a youth association. I never thought that my work in the community as part of the Lion Guardians program could really impress the…

Roaring back to camp

Today I am travelling from the Laikipia Predator Project down to Nairobi, and then back to camp. I am happy to say that from my bed last night I was able to hear the amazing (although slightly scary!) sound of lions roaring. It is an incredible sound, which I have not yet experienced from camp…

Photos of Kapande

As you heard yesterday, we recently held the monthly Lion Guardians meeting. All the Lion Guardians attended the meeting, even Kapande, who has been very ill recently. Looking at Kapande now, I just canâ??t believe that this is the person I knew two months ago. His fingers look longer than usual, his ears that used…

Every month we have a meeting where all the Lion Guardians get together and discuss last month’s successes and the challenges ahead for the next month. Lion Guardians started arriving for the meeting as early as noon the day before! By the morning of the meeting only one Guardian was still missing, and that was…

At peace..!

I have made it back to camp safely now, after my journey from Nairobi. Sometimes Nairobi scares me a lot especially when I come across security men – because it can either mean there is lawlessness in that area, or that the police are hunting for criminals, and when a shoot out starts anybody could…
