It’s happening — we have cubs! A pair of our lions have mated and we have visual confirmation of at least TWO cubs. We are now at 27 lions in the Zambeze Delta. Let’s see what other surprises 2019 has in store for us!
Cabela family matriarch, Mary Cabela, explains why the Cabela Family Foundation chose to get involved with this work and her hopes for the future of the Zambeze Delta.
We got a big surprise on our aerial flight today. One of our female lions had wandered away from her normal group and we wanted to check on her to make sure everything was ok. When we found her, we found that she wasn’t alone. To our surprise, she had a boyfriend! A nomadic male lion, likely from a local park, had joined her.
Looks like we’re back to Twenty Four Lions!
Twenty Four Lions is proud to release its August 2018 Monthly Research Report. Among the month’s accomplishments are:
The successful release of the lions from their bomas
The lions are relaxed towards the presence of the research vehicle, making observation relatively easy
New efforts have begun to track and analyze the lions’ diets
