The Lion Guardian everyone loves!

I think that Ritei is probably the one Guardian that every single person in camp adores. His smile will make any gloomy face happy, and his dedication to his job as a Lion Guardian is unwavering.

He never wants to miss a Lion Guardians meeting, and will walk for hours to get to camp in time. The day before our last meeting Ritei arrived late at night as he had to walk all the way from where he works, which took several hours. As you can imagine this is very dangerous, as well as tiring, and he was still one of the first to be up and ready for the meeting the next morning! Here is Ritei at the meeting after his long walk.


Ritei is very thankful to Richard V for sponsoring him. His sponsorship has made a real impact on Ritei’s family, who used to only own 2 goats. Now they own seven goats and his family is guaranteed of food. Ritei’s sponsorship not only helps him to protect lions, but also helps Ritei’s whole family.


If you would like to make a donation to help the Guardians, their families and the wildlife in Maasailand, please add a quantity in a QTY box to buy an item, or in the USD box to donate an amount of money, and click on Donate. A big thank you from all the Lion Guardians for you support.
