The Lion Guardians project currently employs 30 Maasai warriors (morans) across 3 Group Ranches in the Amboseli ecosystem – Mbirikani, Eselenkei and Olgulului. The Lion Guardians is a non-profit organisation, and is entirely reliant on donations to fund the project, and pay the wages of these Guardians. You can read more about the work of the Lion Guardians on our website. Here are the Guardians from Eselenkei.
The cost of sponsorship is $100 US a month per Guardian. Your donation will go towards the Lion Guardians’ salaries, equipment, and everything needed to keep the project running. All donations made through Panthera are tax deductible. Here are our Guardians from Mbirikani.
Just think – it is only about $3/day, which can make a huge difference to the lives of both the remaining wild lions in this area, and the local people that share their land with them. These are our Guardians from North Olgulului.
