Recently the Leo Foundation received a donation of € 5000 from Chasin’ Group in Duiven for our Nairobi Lion project.
The funds will be used to support a satellite collaring programme of lions in Nairobi National Park, as part of an effort to reduce lion-human conflicts around Nairobi national park. Regularly lions leave the park and kill livestock. Local livestock owners often kill lions in retaliation. Until now six lions have been collared with satellite collars in a collaboration between the Leo foundation, the Institute for Environmental Sciences of Leiden University and Kenya Wildlife Service. The satellite collars of Africa Wildlife Tracking are used to monitor the movements of lions and used as an easly warning system for local livestock owners.
