Today I thought I would share with you some more of the Lion Guardians’ answers to your questions. Annie from the USA asked us what our favourite things about being Lion Guardians are, and what drew us to become Lion Guardians.
Here Melubo tells us that his favourite part of his job is lion tracking, because he is encouraged when he sees that there are more lions around now than there used to be. In answer to the next question Melubo says that he used to risk his life by attacking lions, and he doesn’t want to take these risks anymore. He also says that now there are more lions there are more opportunities for the people in his communities, for example employment.

Lion Guardian Masarie answers the same questions. He likes the respect he gets from his community when he helps them, and he decided to become a Lion Guardian because he was interested to see what benefits his community might get from conserving lions instead of killing them.
