Jackson represents the conflict prone Imarba zone which has experienced several lion killing incidents in the past. This zone lies on the Southern border with Tanzania and apart from lion killing, poaching activities have also been reported, where different wildlife species have been snared and slaughtered on a large scale. In fact just last week Jackson reported to us that a giraffe had been snared and slaughtered and the meat transported by donkeys to Tanzania by 5 poachers.
A typical traditional Maasai moran, Jackson is a reputable tracker who knows all the lion corridors in his zone. Already he has tracked a lioness and her 2 small cubs, and found their zebra kill.
Being magnanimous and generous at heart, he comes from a family blessed with leadership qualities as exemplified by the fact that his elder brother is the chief of the senior morans. Jackson is a very welcome addition to the Lion Guardians team.
