The following dispatch from the field is reported by Richard Bonham, Founder and Chairman of the Maasailand Preservation Trust and Director of Operations for Big Life Foundation.
The shocking statistics of the recent alarming decline of lion numbers in Africa has been well documented: an estimated mere 20,000 lions are left across Africa, a 90% drop in the last 20 years. The lion strayed from the park into Tanzania, and made the fatal mistake of killing a cow, feeding on it, and not leaving the scene of the crime.
The rangers managed to persuade the warriors to back off, allowing the lion to make it back into Kenya and the relative safety of the park and the adjoining group ranch.
The ranch is one of a number on the Kenyan side that has a compensation policy for local people whose livestock have been taken by lions.

Two years after being discovered deep in a South African cave, the 1,500 fossils excavated during the Rising Star Expedition have been identified as belonging to a previously unknown early human relative that National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Lee Berger and team have named Homo naledi.

With at least 15 individuals of all ages and both sexes represented, the find adds an unprecedented amount of information to our understanding of early human evolution in Africa. In addition, the absence of any other animal remains or large debris in the fossil chamber strongly suggests that these non-human beings intentionally deposited their dead within this cave. BANABA ISLAND, Kiribati—Asbestos dust covers the floors of Banaba’s crumbling colonial houses, buildings, and schools.
As the Maasai of this area are reliant on livestock for their livelihoods, their reaction was predictable—they retaliated.
This program has been statistically proven to go a long way in helping mitigate human-carnivore conflict in the region. Its so frustrating to see this and to feel so powerless and unable to make a difference but spreading the word is a great start.
Posters and commenters are required to observe National Geographic's community rules and other terms of service. To learn firsthand what's going on in and around this marine treasure of global importance, the National Geographic Society sent its top scientists and officials to the region in January 2016. This latest unfortunate incident shows that such a program is also much needed on the Tanzanian side of the ecosystem.

They toured the desert islands off the southeastern coast of the Baja Peninsula and they listened to presentations by more than a dozen experts, including several whose Baja California research is funded by the Society. People need to realise the severity of their actions and if they are so mindless and self centred maybe the only way to appeal to them is to make them realise they are only cheating themselves and the future generations. More importantly a short term gain can turn into longterm when made sustainable and therefore will generate more profit.
I wish I could personally capture every poacher put them away for life, as well as rid those people who seem to feel owning ivory is a necessity to fulfil a social status etc. Worse yet we are digging our own graves through consumerism, we can’t expect to keep taking so much when there are so few of us who give anything back. If anyone can look through photos of the most majestic creature on earth being slaughtered and not have any compassion or desire to end this unfair cruelty you are not worth the oxygen on this earth.
