We at Lion landscapes would like to thank @amivitale for her continued support and for hosting us during a week-long social media takeover. Ami is a National Geographic magazine photographer and Nikon Ambassador whose work is exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. Having travelled to over 100 countries she has witnessed and documented not only violence and conflict but also “surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit”. Ami has won multiple awards including the international photographer of the year. @boranaconservancy @elewanacollection@elkaramaecolodge@elkaramaranch@houstonzoo@kenyawildlifeservice@loisaba_conservancy @mugieconservancy @nature_africa@nature_org @oljogi @peregrinefund@pridelionalliance @sandiegozoo@Segera Ranch @sosianlodge @tusk_org#thankyou#lionlandscapes#coexistencecoop#livingwithlions#WillsAfricaTrust#WildCRU #suyianranch#mpalaranch #lionlandscapesrangers#collaringforcoexistence#lion#monitoring#conservation#coexistence#livingtogether#laikipia#destinationlaikipia#thisislaikipia#kenya#magicalkenya#northernkenya#africa#everydayafrica

#Repost@amivitale (@get_repost) ・・・ Photo by @amivitale. Students at Ewaso Primary school listen to @lionlandscapes researcher Thomas Mojong teach them about lions outside of @loisaba_conservancy in Laikipia, northern Kenya. Learning about lion ecology, research and management, and how to better protect livestock from lion attacks will help these students become champions for lions within the community and encourage them to seek the means to co-exist with lions.

#Repost@amivitale (@get_repost) ・・・ Photo by @amivitale. Isaak Kosgei looks into the darkness inside a boma (enclosure) at @loisaba_conservancy in Laikipia, northern Kenya. Behind him is an alarm developed by Savannah Tracking, which will blast sound and flash lights when a lion collared by @lionlandscapes approaches. On his phone, is an app developed by @savetheelephants and @Vulcan that gives him access to real time collared lion movements. Knowing where lions are and providing non-violent methods to scare them away promotes a peaceful coexistence.

#Repost@amivitale (@get_repost) ・・・ Photo by @amivitale. Narok, a collared lioness and her young cub, rest in the shrubby grasslands at @loisaba_conservancy in Laikipia, northern Kenya. The collars are carefully fitted to maximize the lion’s comfort. With over 200 collars having been placed in 20 years of research, there has been no sign of injury or negative impact. On the contrary, a collar can save a lion’s life. Satellite collars help groups like @lionlandscapes track the movements of lions living amongst people and livestock. Real-time movement data from these collars teaches us about how lions survive in human-dominated landscapes, and helps us to prevent human-lion conflict by keeping livestock away from known lion locations. And, if a collared lion approaches a livestock enclosure outfitted with an alarm, the alarm will blare, scaring the lion away. With less human-wildlife conflict, all species benefit.

#Repost@amivitale (@get_repost) ・・・ Photo by @amivitale. Loyanae Lonolngiro herds livestock outside of the enclosure where the animals sleep at night with a lion alarm outfitted by @lionlandscapes at @loisaba_conservancy in Laikipia, northern Kenya. In Laikipia, livestock owners have found and are finding ways to coexist with lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs. They are amazing for doing this. We owe them enormous gratitude for being so tolerant in the face of threats to their livelihoods and even their lives. @lionlandscapes works to support these livestock owners wherever possible. Among other undertakings, @lionlandscapes Rangers are trained to visit livestock enclosures, spot practices that could make livestock vulnerable to lion attacks and help livestock owners better guard their livestock from lions.

#Repost@amivitale (@get_repost) ・・・ Photo by @amivitale.@lionlandscapes Lion Rangers gather around a fire at a boma (enclosure) in @loisaba_conservancy in Laikipia, northern Kenya. By monitoring lion movements closely, the Lion Rangers are able to preempt human-carnivore conflict by warning livestock owners of the lions whereabouts and shadowing lions when they move into areas with high risk of conflict. They also serve as ambassadors for wildlife, educating and supporting local livestock owners in conservation initiatives. @lionlandscapes is currently trying to raise funding to support 40 rangers which would be enough to cover 400,000 acres of land that supports wildlife, people and livestock in Laikipia wildlife properties by the end of 2019. They’re hoping to expand even further the following year.

#Repost@amivitale (@get_repost) ・・・ Photo by @amivitale. A lion looks up from his freshly caught wild prey at @loisaba_conservancy in Laikipia, northern Kenya. Large wide ranging carnivores like lions are normally one of the first mammal species to be lost in areas shared with people and livestock. Their presence in a human dominated landscape like this one is a symbol of a successful coexistence. Apex predators like lions play a vital role in maintaining a healthy balance in an ecosystem, impacting everything below them, from soil nutrients and disease, to plant, prey and scavenger populations. If lions are doing well then the entire ecosystem is likely doing well. In the long term, that means the ecosystem will be better able to support the people that also rely on it. To learn more, follow @lionlandscapes, @loisaba_conservancy, @nature_africa, @peregrinefund and @tusk_org who are working together to promote coexistence between humans and lions for the benefit of people and nature in northern Kenya. Lion conservation is facing huge challenges and no one organisation can solve them alone. Vital partnerships like these make the huge undertaking of saving these magnificent creatures possible.

Community Coexistence Training works directly with local livestock owners to build their capacity to prevent livestock depredation and spread awareness about the human and livestock health issues associated with the misuse of poisons. Community Coexistence Training is part of the Coexistence Co-op; a partnership between @lionlandscapes and @peregrinefund to reduce livestock lost to carnivores and stop the retaliatory use of highly toxic pesticides. The increasing use of poisons poses a serious threat to lions and critically endangered vultures, as well as other wildlife, human and livestock health due to environmental exposure. @boranaconservancy @elewanacollection@elkaramaecolodge@elkaramaranch@houstonzoo@kenyawildlifeservice@loisaba_conservancy@mugieconservancy @nature_africa@nature_org @oljogi @peregrinefund@pridelionalliance @sandiegozoo@Segera Ranch @sosianlodge @tusk_org#lionlandscapes#coexistencecoop#livingwithlions#WillsAfricaTrust#WildCRU #suyianranch#mpalaranch #lionlandscapesrangers#collaringforcoexistence#lion#monitoring#conservation#coexistence#livingtogether#laikipia#destinationlaikipia#thisislaikipia#kenya#magicalkenya#northernkenya#africa#everydayafrica
