On 7 February 2019 a large male lion was collared with an AWT satellite collar in Lake Nakuru NP, Kenya.
Another lioness was collared on Monday 18 February 2019. The collaring took place in support of the joint project by KWS, University Leiden, Antwerp University and Leo foundation.The project is coordinated by KWS staff and PhD student Monica Chege with the support of two biology students from Leiden University (Amy and Sam)
With the satellite collar KWS and Leo staff will be able to follow the movements of the lion during the coming year. In this way, we hope to reduce and prevent lion-livestock conflicts in the the nearby cattle farm Soysambu. During the past years lions have been creeping under the fence of Nakuru NP entering Soysambu cattle farm, where they create frequently serious conflicts.
