Stephanie Dolrery, Co-founder of Lion Guardians, explains the strategic approach, "The programme we designed is in line with the traditions and cultures so it is encouraging the warriors who traditionally hunt the lions to track the lion and it is not for the weak of heart to go tracking a lion on foot by yourself, it is difficult and it is scary when the lion charges you so you have to be strong and that is for the warriors to do. Maasai are the best at that. Maasai warriors that is what they have traditionally always done so it was a natural fit to bring in lion conservation."africanews
