Yesterday as you saw, we had our usual end of the month meeting. This time round the attendance was a hundred percent. All the Guardians made it to the meeting despite difficult conditions. At this time it is raining in many parts of the Group Ranch.
They reported good news from their zones. Although tracking is not easy when rain washes away tracks everyday, they keep on doing their best so as not to lose the opportunity to track. When wildlife is concentrated as they are during this time of year, the lions sometimes come closer together. We can find several of them occupying a small area. As a result, this is the best time to track, monitor, and possibly even collar more lions.
One of our collared lions, Nempakia, moved into Amboseli National Park, several kilometers away from our group ranch. On a recent trip there, Seamus went out in pursuit of her. He found several other lions in the reserve and he took pictures I am sure many of our supporters will really like to see.
(note from Seamus: We think that this is the pride male that Nempakai is associating with. He has characteristic scars on his face that make him fairly easy to identify, as well as some clear ear notches. The more astute amongst you southerners might recognise the Leeu-loop)
