Against the magnificent backdrop of the Nasera rock, we held interviews last week, for the coveted position of a KopeLion Ilchokuti, in this area. Out of 16 potentials, 4 were chosen for their skills and are currently completing a paid assessment week of working, to see who comes out top. In this way we assure our employment is fair, and that we get the right fit to take over from Ndolok, as he progresses in his new role in lion monitoring and research. #corridortoftolerance #communityconservation #livingwithlions #humanwildlifecoexistence #coexistence #ilchokuti #kopelion #ngorongorolions #ngorongorocrater #ngorongoroconservationarea #ngorongorodistrict #ngorongoro #lionconservation #naserarock Photos: Saning'o Kimani, Ololotu MunkaNdolok Kilitya ...
