It is with great sadness we announce that a young male lion was shot dead recently in Samburu, northern Kenya.

We have been unable to confirm the identity of the lion but suspect that it is Loiwotwa, a young nomadic male we have been monitoring for the last three years.

Our team continues to patrol the area together with conservancy rangers. We are grateful to everyone for the support during what has been a challenging time for our team.
