Lions in Nairobi National Park get Tracking Collar

By Victoria on July 12, 2017 in Positive News

Lions in the Nairobi National Park are being fitted with tracking collars in a move to protect both the animals and members of the public.

The action has been taken to allow Park rangers to map out the animals movements, which should help prevent them from roaming beyond the Park’s borders. Some of the lions have been previously shot and killed in order to protect the public.

The Kenya Wildlife Service is working with the International Fund for Animal Welfare on the project, and the two organisations are planning to monitor and map out lion movements in and around the park so that they are alerted when lions start to stray into regions of danger.

Last year, the Kenya Wildlife Service was forced to kill a lion when it wandered into a human settlement.

The Nairobi National Park is home to 100 different mammal species including rhinos, cheetahs and giraffes and also hosts 400 migratory and endemic bird species.
