Nairobi is a rapidly growing city, but the sharp toothed big cats have remained despite the breakneck urbanization.

I love big cats. Its not so much a love born of fantasy as it is from experience. If they can't live with them I would take as many as I could. It seems to me that where conservation is concerned there is no longer "one big ark" just many little ones.
I actually like that strategy.

Many Kenyans live without automobiles and must walk or use buses and bicycles to travel long distances. The idea of walking down a Kenyan highway and suddenly facing a lion is truly terrifying, particularly if one is a schoolboy!

In addition, many lions are killed by Masai tribesmen who lose cattle to them....in some areas, they're poisoned not just lions but the carrion eaters who feed on the corpses.

The attitude in Kenya is that wildlife can take care of itself and will always be there.

Not so.....not so.

Let's home this effort succeeds!

When species are pitted against each other the news is most disturbing.

That was the lions land first. There are way too many humans on this earth and not enough animals. I hope the world changes and start giving the animals a chance.

When humans encroach on land that wild animals inhabit, the animals don't stand a chance.

Beautiful, hope they can solve the Kenyan village idiot problem so they don't migrate to the USA and invade our government. I'd rather have a lion or bonobo in the Whitehouse than that Kenyan village idiot!

It is so irritating that humans move into animal habitat and expect the animals to just "move on" out of their own territory they have had for centuries. It is just like human ego and greed. You build on existing hunting ground and across their hunting paths and you expect WHAT???? It is like the people who moved into new homes next to a dairy farm here in AZ and were upset when the wind shifted and they got the real deal of a dairy farm. Humans are so frigging stupid and greedy. Get out of the animals homes. It belongs to them, not you!!!
