Maasai Park Rangers from Kenya Visit the Women for Africa Foundation

Two true pioneers, Kenyan rangers Everlyne Mornan and Purity Amleset Lakara, members of Team Lioness, or Kenya Lioness Patrol, visited the Women for Africa Foundation today.

Both, along with the analyst of crimes against biodiversity of the same country Jacquiline Bubi, are in Spain to receive the ‘Animal Rights 2021’ Award at the international level, which was presented to them yesterday by the Minister Ione Belarra, in recognition of their work for animal protection and coexistence with human communities and their fight against poaching.

The Team Lioness rangers are Maasai women who work for the Maasai community in Olgulului, near the Tanzanian border and Amboseli National Park. Their daily work consists of patrolling the area, getting to know the situation of the different animals, solving any problems that may arise in the coexistence of animals and people, and preventing poaching.
