The African lion population has disappeared from 92% of their historical range*. It is estimated that there are between 20,000 to 30,000 lions remaining across the continent – down from perhaps 200,000 lions a hundred years ago. In Kenya, the national population now numbers less than 2,500 individuals.

Ewaso Lions was formed to ensure a future for lions and other large carnivores in northern Kenya. Ewaso Lions is dedicated to conserving lions and other large carnivores by promoting coexistence between people and wildlife. We are an independent 100% African wildlife conservation organisation based in Samburu, Isiolo and Nairobi which engages and builds the capacity of key demographic groups (elders, warriors, women, and children) by developing approaches to reduce human-carnivore conflict. We conduct applied research and work with our communities to address ecological problems. We carry out educational initiatives to reinforce traditionally held beliefs and the evolving culture of wildlife conservation across the landscape.
