Ewaso Lions is dedicated to conserving lions and other large carnivores by promoting co-existence between people and wildlife. They are an independent 100% African wildlife conservation organization based in northern Kenya which engages and builds the capacity of key demographic groups (warriors, women, and children) by developing approaches to reduce human-carnivore conflict. They conduct applied research and work with our communities to address ecological problems. The team carries out educational initiatives to reinforce traditionally held beliefs and the evolving culture of wildlife conservation across the landscape. The following speakers from Ewaso Lions will also be joined by Mama Simba Coordinator Munteli Lalparasaroi, Head of Security Francis Lendorop, and Field Officer Yesalai Lemachokoti.

Resson Kantai Duff is speaking in the Conservation in Local Hands roundtable.
