• Meet Warriors on a Mission to Help Lions and Humans Coexist

by Malik Rehan

Jeneria Lekilelei, a warrior from the Samburu tribe of Northern Kenya, has dedicated his life to wildlife conservation. In 2010 he founded Warrior Watch to encourage Samburu men to conserve lions. Since then, the local lions population has risen from 11 animals to 50.
