Mara Lion Masacre

September 13, 2013

Just to bring home how important lion conservation is, Niels Mogenson of the Mara Naboisho Lion Project presented his research and results. 

 

The message is clear - if we don't act now to cut down the conflicts between people and lions there can only be one outcome - lions will be extinct within the next 20 years. 
This picture, taken by Niels and his team shows the horrific effects of poison on 1 lion. What it doesn't show is that when 1 lion is poisoned the whole pride is wiped out along with it. This is what happened to Nashipai, the lioness that featured in my video, and all her 3 cubs, and the rest of the Eniskoola pride.

Please support the Mara Naboisho Lion Project if you can - at Enlightened Media and Hawk's Head Photography we will be fundraising in the coming months to buy tracking collars.
