Female conservation Rangers

The first female Maasai community ranger unit in Kenya known as 'Team Lioness', protects wildlife on traditional Maasai land within the Greater Amboseli-Tsavo-Kilimanjaro region. The group of brave women is bringing a new perspective and skill set to the ranger unit. Although it was hard for them to get support from the Council of Elders, the women are now on their way to preventing poaching and protecting local wildlife. The ethnic Maasai ladies are part of 76 network based officers guarding panthers, elephants, giraffe and other natural life in the 147,000-hectare (363,000-section of land) territory encompassing Kenya's Amboseli National Park.
