Welcome to the team Kylie!
We are very happy to introduce you to our new biologist who is now working for the Kilimanjaro Lion Conservation Project, the lion research wing of Living with Lions on Mbirikani Group Ranch.
Kylie joins us from Budongo Forest, Uganda where she was working for the Jane Goodall Institute, an organisation dedicated to the conservation of chimpanzees and their habitat. She now keeps track of our lions on Mbirikani and surrounding areas, and follows up any sightings and reports from Lion Guardians.
So far Kylie has helped find our lost lion, Selenkay, who had wandered very far from where she was first found, has had some close encounters with newly collared female Nimaoi, and has caught up with Nemasi’s two remaining offspring. All of this whilst getting to know her way around the ranch, meeting all the Lion Guardians, and trying to get used to the weird and wonderful ways of the Living with Lions team!
Kylie will be bringing you news from the collared and un-collared lions she finds on Mbirikani, and keeping you up to date with the local prides. Welcome Kylie!
can’t wait to hear news from Kylie.
