Herders Rescue 2 Lion Cubs in Kajiado County

It’s a story you rarely come across: A herder who rescues two lion cubs in distress. Most of the time interactions between herders and carnivores is one of human-wildlife conflicts. However, out of Kajiado County comes a story of how the community the Kenya Wildlife Service and a veterinarian changed the narrative.

This story is another in a series of reporting I am doing, as a part of my work to tell more stories of the polycrisis in Africa and its impacts.
