18Apr Lions and Warriors: A Participatory Approach to Lion Conservation in Kenyan Maasailand w/ Leela Hazzah and Stephanie DolrenryMonday, April 18, 2011 - 7:00pm Monday, April 18, 2011 - 7:00pmThe Explorers Club

The iconic African lion is in danger. Their populations are plummeting, with fewer than 30,000 lions left in the wild today. Habitat loss and conflict with pastoralist communities are the predominant reasons for their precipitous decline. In southern Kenya, a conservation initiative is employing pastoralist warriors, traditionally responsible for killing lions, to protect the remaining wild lions in southern Kenya. The Lion Guardians have a mission to promote and sustain coexistence between people and lions through peer-based education, ecological monitoring and local capacity building. The program has been operating successfully in Maasailand since January 2007, expanding through most of the 5000km Amboseli Ecosystem.

As recently as one hundred years ago, more than 100,000 wild tigers (Panthera tigris) roamed the forests and grasslands of Asia. Today, less than 3,200 wild tigers remain, occupying just 7% of their historic range. With the threats posed by poaching, climate change, and habitat loss, the future for wild tigers appears bleak and is wrought with challenges, yet hope still remains.
