    Hi gao xiao. Thanks for your interest in Lion Guardians. All I can suggest is that you keep reading this blog, tell all your friends about it, and if you can, donate some money to help the Lion Guardians with their work, or even sponsor a Lion Guardian. Thank you!

    Hi Anthony,

    Nice to see locals on the ground and in charge. People and their livlihoods, as well as conservation, matter.
    Thank you for the great website!

    Hi Lion guardian,

    today I was lucky to see the report about your work. I’m from Germany and I think you do a fantastic job. I love Africa and all the animals – especially the lions.
    Please continue your work. I want to come again to Africa – for that dream I’m studying hard.
    I think I will tell all my friends about your site and work.

    Happy New Year

    Elly

    Hallo Lion Gauardian
    I’m concerned about what the Lions feed on. Seeing that it is not the local cattle herds. I do not think there are any usual Lion Food walking around in Kenya, anymore. All the buck and other wildlife Lion Food, have been killed and eaten. If the Lion do not feed on the catle, then what is left for them to eat?

    Hi Teresa!
    That is the exact problem being faced right now as much of the lions’ natural prey has died in the drought we have recently been suffering. However, there is still enough natural prey for the lions, and there has recently been a relocation of a large number of herbivores from a different part of Kenya by KWS.
    Thanks for reading!

    Hi Eric, Antony and all Lion guardians,
    First, I want to say thank you for all what you do for lions and Masaï people. I understand you work for both side because Masaïs and Lions live at the same place. If we find solution for Masaï, we’ll find solution for lions. But the most important problem now is that Masaï people have stop to move as they used to do in the past. There is more and more bomas, more cattle, more plantation ! That means there is less place for lions and elephants.
    Do you have informations about lion-proof bomas that KWS has started to build around Amboseli ?
    Last thing, I wish to help you but I would like to communicate with you through email to be able to explain. I’m the chairman of a small NGO in France and we want to do something for lions. So if you can see my email, please write to me as soon as possible. I use to go to Kenya every year and I wish to meet you there to talk about our help. Thank you so much.

    Hola soy de Bolivia y me encanta mucho la labor que hacen, sin embargo quisiera hacerles una consulta, acá en Bolivia existen aproximadamente 20 leones q se rescataron por lo general de los circos. Actualmente no hay espacio en donde mantenerlos, ni reserva q los pueda recibir, y existe la posibilidad de sacrificarlos en caso de no encontrar un lugar para ellos. Yo me encuentro muy preocupada al respecto y me preguntaba q soluciones podrían existir dado q ustedes deben conocer lugares q talvez los puedan recibir.Por favor estaré a la espera de algún comentario.Gracias.Saludos.

    It is difficult for any group of people/civilization to change years of cultural practices. Hopefully with education and programs such as this, humans and wild cats can live together somehow. It is a difficult balance and struggle for “power”; the cats need to eat, but the people need their cattle for their own survival, especially in an environment where crop cultivation is very difficult. This is the endless battle of balance between humans and animals occupying the same space/land. Hopefully with education, protecting the homes and cattle with strong fences, they can keep the cats away from their food source. I hope that the practice of using Insecticides such as carbofuran will also be reduced, outlawed. This is a poison that is banned in Europe and the USA, but used in Africa to keep large cats away from crops. Other creative ways to keep the cats away must be found and implemented.

    I grew up in Kenya. My father did his doctrate in Anthropology with the Maasai tribe. I remember him talking about the lion issue. I don’t remember when I learned about this organization but I think it is great. Now as an adult with my own family I am homeschooling my children. We have been learning about countries around the world. This week we are learning about Kenya. We will be holding out own Lion Keepers games. Thank you so much for the work you are doing to support culture and the environment.

    What a great program ! I sincrely hope it’s working to help save some of the world’s most majestic animals.It just makes sense that the Masai communicate the true value of these great animals to their own people. I am donating now to help make a difference for this wonderful cause.
