William Oleseki


William was born and raised in Ngorongoro. He had more book- than bush skills, and it was obvious that he could reach far beyond being a herd boy. Thanks to foresight by his parents and sponsors, William was sent away for education. His studies took him to studies at universities in Irland and Uganda, where he graduated with a degree in Development Studies. William has intimate knowledge of the social, economic and political dimensions of coexistence in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and he has worked for both the Pastoralist Council and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority. As to most residents here, the Ngorongoro is very dear to William. He immediately saw and embraced the vision of KopeLion – for a successful human-lion coexistence managed by him and his people.
