FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • Can I if volunteer with you?

    Please see our volunteers page for information about volunteering.

  • How can I help conserve lions?

    We rely on donations and grants to fund all our work. If you would like to help us find solutions to this conservation crisis you can donate to us online through Panthera, making sure you state that your money should go towards LWL or any of the particular LWL projects you would like to support. Please read our donate page for more information on donating to LWL.

It also helps us if you tell you friends about LWL and our work. Please help us by encouraging your friends to visit our blogs, join us on facebook and spread the word!

  • What should I study at university if I want to do research on lions later in life?

    A strong grounding in the biological sciences will be at the core of everything you do. Preferably aim for zoology and ecology in some form. An exceptional command of English is important. As much wildlife research and conservation takes place outside protected areas these days, you might consider some social sciences, such as rural development and economics.

  • I am a Kenyan graduate with a degree in the biological sciences/wildlife management. Do you have a job for me?

    Maybe. Please email info@livingwithlions.org with a two page CV and explain what your interests are.

  • Is lion research dangerous and exciting?

    We follow strict guidelines for the safety of all the people that work on our projects to minimize the hazards involved in this work. If one doesn’t step outside the bounds of “best practice” then lion research is fairly safe. It's not always exciting, and there are some boring parts the public never sees.

  • Don’t the collars bother the animals?

    Wild animals adjust to wearing a collar just as a dog does – very quickly. In many cases, they barely seem aware of it even when it is newly affixed, and in all cases they adapt to it within a few hours. We have frequently seen lions and hyenas wake up from anesthesia and seem totally oblivious to the collar that was not there an hour before. The collar does no harm when properly fitted, and the animal shows no sign that it is aware of it.
