Can Good Come From Maasai Lion Killings in the Serengeti?

Young Maasai morani (warriors) still sometimes hunt lions as a rite of passage, a voucher of courage and competence, although Maasai elders in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA), along the park's eastern border, reportedly discourage it.

Great article and video. I think the plan may just work for the Massai morani. A payment for conservation of the lions as right of passage, instead of spearing one.
Thank You Cher.
