Lin is the young adult daughter of Lena. In September, our friend Philip, owner of Kasenyi Safari Camp, alerted us to a lioness in very poor condition.

We investigated and observed she had been severely injured, likely by a warthog. After consulting with UWA, we darted her, treated her, and put a radio collar on her. For the next several weeks, we monitored her health closely and provided further treatment.

We're happy to announce that Lin is fully recovered. She has re-joined her pride and is quite active and we are continuing to monitor her.
