Kenya's lions could be extinct in the next two decades, largely due to habitat loss and conflict with humans over livestock depredation. The Ewaso Lions project conserves northern Kenya’s remaining lions by promoting coexistence between people and wildlife. Since 2007, this coexistence has been achieved through community-based conservation programs, which engage Samburu warriors, women, elders, and youth in activities that benefit human livelihoods while also conserving wildlife and protecting habitat.
