August 10 is World Lion Day, which is recognized as a day to focus on the conservation of African lions.
The Lion Rangers are privileged to be counted among Africa’s and Namibia’s leading lion conservation organizations. But working on communal land, we are reminded everyday that lion conservation in northwest Namibia is a communal and team effort.
This World Lion Day we are spotlighting just a few of the individuals making desert-adapted lion conservation possible. The people pictured and so many others are critical members of our team and partners. We cannot do it without them!
These are just a few of the countless people working to ensure the success of the program and the continued coexistence of lions and people in northwest Namibia!!!
