#PhotographyForGood#repost from @amivitale | 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.

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.

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

Photo by @amivitale.@lionlandscapes Lion Rangers gather around the fire at a boma (enclosure) at @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 by the end of 2019. They’re hoping to expand even further the following year.

Collaring for Coexistence started in 2017. This partnership between Lion Landscapes and Living with Lions provides conservation livestock owners with real-time lion movement information from GPS collars via a mobile phone app developed by @savetheelephants, allowing them to keep livestock away from lions or be on guard when lions are near. This program also tests new technologies that facilitate coexistence between people and carnivores. For example, virtual fences that warn us when lions enter areas where there is high risk of conflict, alarms that detect the approach of collared lions and warn livestock guards, and devices that scare away large carnivores by randomly shouting or flashing lights.

Happy New Year! As we leave behind 2018 and enter 2019, we want to say a big Thank You to our supporters and partners. Long-term partnerships are central to the way we work; instead of tackling the many threats facing large carnivores by building a large Lion Landscapes team, we remain a small team that works to design effective programmes, and build the capacity of partner organisations and enterprises working on the same landscapes to help implement them. We believe that developing a partnership model makes all our programs more scalable and sustainable. At the end of 2018 our programmes were running over 2,500 sq. km. of important lion habitat. By the end of 2019, our goal is to have activities that we have designed and manage running over 8,000 sq. km. helping to secure more important Lion Landscapes. We could not hope to achieve this without our supporters and partners. Thank you!

Lions are not easy to co-exist with. The good news is that lions do learn to stay away from people and their livestock, as long as the livestock is well protected and that there is wild prey for lions to eat. @lionlandscapes are hoping to raise $12,000 for a lion ranger team, in response to requests for help from local livestock owners to reduce livestock killed by lions and avoid lions being killed in retaliation.

Photo by @amivitale Satellite collars help us to 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. @lionlandscapes@loisaba_conservancy@nature_africa@tusk_org and the Peregrine Fund are working together to reduce conflict between humans and lions for the benefit of people and nature in northern Kenya.

This #GivingTuesday please support our Lion Rangers, who are working hard to protect Laikipia's livestock, livelihoods and lions: https://www.lionlandscapes.org/rangers. This includes helping to test new technologies that protect livestock from lions. Here livestock owners admire a new boma alarm system, developed by Savannah Tracking, that can detect and warn them when a collared lion approaches.

Lions are not easy to co-exist with. The good news is that lions are normally afraid of people and do learn to stay away from people and their livestock, as long as the livestock is well protected and there is wild prey for lions to eat.

The coexistence training course taught the team of six rangers how to respond effectively to incidences of human-carnivore conflict, poisoning or infectious diseases on Loisaba and also on neighbouring communities. We will keep you updated on their progress!

Thinking like lions! The new Lion Rangers @loisaba_conservancy role play how a lion would approach and attack a livestock boma. After this exercise they discuss what could be improved at each boma to prevent an attack by large carnivores. Part of their role is to respond to carnivore attacks on ranches and neighbouring communities and advise livestock owners on how to prevent them #LionLandscapesRangers#livingwithlions#laikipia@nature_org@nature_africa@tusk_org#willsafricatrust#loisaba#lion#conservation
