Lion Landscapes

This organisation aims to use data to help foster coexistence between lions and people.

Lions pose a major conservation challenge due the conflicts that arise from the killing of livestock. Mugie currently has over 40 lions divided in 4 prides across the Conservancy and in order to reduce and prevent the predation of livestock, two females in two different prides were fitted with a collar in partnership with Lion Landscapes and KWS. The specialised GPS collars allow the Conservation Team to follow the pride movements and prevent incidents from happening by making the herders/community aware of the presence of lions in their specific areas.

Mugie is currently waiting for a third collar that will be fitted on the Western Pride to further mitigate conflict.
