Lion Ambassador Naming Poll

New Lion Ambassador

We recently shared the exciting news we’ve partnered with two new lion projects, Kope Lion and Musekese Conservation.  

This thrilling collaboration means we’re following a new lion within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania, which is designated as a protected area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. She is an adult lioness part of an established population with the Twin Hill Pride and, alongside her sisters, makes up a key and formidable part of the family group’s hunting force. 

Living within this 8,300 sq. km wilderness comes with many challenges. She and the rest of her pride must survive through seasonal water shortages, and cope with the feast and famine conditions brought on by the natural migrations of prey species such as wildebeest.  

She also shares her homelands with nearly 100,000 pastoralists. In the months where natural prey is scarcer (typically July – December), their herds of cattle and other livestock can bring her and the rest of the pride into potential conflict with these communities, who feel compelled to protect their livelihoods at any cost. 

At around six years old, she represents a lioness in her prime. With lions being a popular and important part of the region’s tourism industry, she is a worthy ambassador, helping turn potential human-wildlife conflict into human-wildlife coexistence.
