We are happy to announce that the KLCP lion tracking website is up and running!
We currently monitor 4 lions (1 male -Sikiria and 3 females – Birdie, Selenkay & Nosioki) with GPS collars on the website. Thanks to a generous donation from Original Godal Productions, KLCP & MPT are now able to closely monitor Birdie’s movements through an Iridium satellite collar. Her movements are updated nearly every day (depending on satellite coverage) while the other three lions are wearing UHF download collars which we download each month.
We want to extend a sincere thank you to Mike Calvin who has worked very hard getting this site up and running once again with some fancy new features; click on the boxes next to the lion names to see their detailed paths and hit the animate and then play button to see their daily movements. We have also added in the group ranch boundaries and the three safari lodges and camp which are within the lions’ ranges. We will continue to update the map (updating boma locations, etc.) and welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
Hope you all enjoy!
