BENEFITING: Maasai Wilderness Conservation
EVENT DATE: Jul 01, 2012
Hi everyone, I'm a student who decided to go to Kenya for his Master Project. Exactly, I'll go to the Nairobi National Park to try to solve a problem which is mainly affecting the lions of the park. The problem is that the lions have always less space to live and now they're entering in Nairobi city and the surrounding farms looking for something to eat. If the lions kill the livestock, the farmer have a revenge killing the lions.
The purpose of the project is to educate the people in order to avoid the further loss of lions population and try to build some corridors to connect the national parks to allow the lions to move within the corridors.
The project will be carried on with GIS technique after have collared the lions with a radio-transmittor to understand the moving pattern.
