Blog Index Lion Capture!

Here is ‘hot off the press’ news from Shamwari Conservation Experience.

Yesterday we darted a sub-adult male lion and the SCE volunteers were over the moon to get involved, as for many this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

To prevent lion overpopulation on Shamwari Game Reserve we relocated this young lion to our neighbouring reserve and we also put a tracking collar on him in order to monitor his movements at his new home.

We will keep you updated as news comes in. Well done to all the volunteers, we are extremely proud of you!
