It's #GivingTuesday today, and after a whirlwind of a year for KopeLion, we'd like to say thanks for all the support that we've received from everyone, our donors, supporters, our hardworking team, the authorities we work closely with, the Ngorongoro community, and those who say, 'well done', 'sorry' or simply listen.
Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is a critical site for lion which are classified as ‘Vulnerable’ on the IUCN red list.
Noongoile has been seen in the company of two males: Laipangwa from Ndutu and Titan Jr, one of the Crater's Lake Quintet coalition.
Ndolok Kitiliya lives in the most incredibly beautiful, but dry, Nasera area and is the Regional Coordinator for the Ilchokuti across to and including Ndutu.
After some years of following Nosikitok and her pride in Ndutu, her collar dropped off as per schedule in December, and we needed to find a new lion to follow.
