Walking with Lion

A 'Friends of Il Ngwesi' evening to hear about new approaches to community conservation in northern Kenya.

An evening with James Kinyaga to hear the remarkable story of the Il Ngwesi Maasai who have decided to Walk with Lion to secure their future.
Over the past 15 years this locally owned project has pioneered an approach to conservation which benefits both the local community and the ecosystem on which they depend. The Il Ngwesi area remains a locally owned cooperative, and we will learn of their resolve to keep it run by the community. But will the Il Ngwesi model survive? And can the Maasai retain ownership of their heritage and culture whilst setting ever higher goals for themselves and the ecosystem that has served them so well over so many generations.
