Three years ago, seven lions (5 females, 2 males) were re-introduced to Akagera National Park after approximately 15 years of absence. Today, there are 22 lions in the park, with 15 cubs born since 2015.
This month, we are thrilled to welcome two guest speakers who are working with these lions!
Drew Bantlin is a PhD Candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who is studying predator-prey interactions and ecosystem effects following reintroduction of lions. Drew has worked in Akagera NP since 2015, focusing on lions, but also looking at rhinos, giraffes and other carnivores.
Joseph Karama is the Community Liaison Manager for Akagera NP, who works closely with the communities adjacent to Akagera, to develop strategies for managing human-wildlife interaction, and monitoring conflict and community sentiments. He has a Master’s in Zoology and Participatory Education from Miami University of Ohio, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Environmental Journalism and Communication from Makerere University in Uganda and a Law Degree from the National University of Rwanda. He is all about conservation and is a strong believer in community engagement and education as a key conservation tool that is quite often not emphasised enough. In his free time, he likes to read and writes for the local media.
