Anna gets a new collar!

We had not seen Anna for over a year and feared the worse.  However, one day while tracking Omukama, James saw her with him.  Very good to see her after so long!  It seems the battery in Anna’s collar had simply gone bad.  After tracking her for a few days and waiting for an optimum moment, we tranquilized her and put on a new collar. 

Anna’s territory is close to one of the park’s enclave villages.  One of her adult daughters and her offspring are usually with Anna.  Therefore, it’s important to monitor her movements in order to try to mitigate potential conflict with humans and their livestock. 

If you are able to help sponsor a lion monitoring patrol or a new collar, please consider donating.
