We also have ongoing installations in the Loliondo area of Tanzania, including the areas of Wasso and Ololosokwan, and eventually hope to install lights in other areas of Tanzania, where human/wildlife conflict is prevalent. We have also installed lights in Randelin, Endulin, Sinya, West Kilimanjaro, and recently Ruaha National Park area. We have lights on almost 300 bomas now!
We are attempting to honor the warriors on both sides of the conflict: the lion warriors and Maasai warriors—by creating a peaceful resolution between the two parties.
These lights also work with leopards, as in Philipo’s village, hyenas, and even elephants, keeping them out of fields filled with produce.
With human populations increasing, there is more pressure on wildlife because of habitat loss, and the availability and ease of catching livestock. As a result, lion and leopard populations have decreased drastically in the last 20 years. We can’t imagine a world where the only lions and leopards are in zoos, so we are doing our best to help preserve them, and preserve the pastoralists lifestyle as well.
What We Do
How We Do It
We travel the countryside, installing lights where they are needed, to help rural communities protect their livestock and stop the retaliatory killing of predators.
We install solar strobe lights on the enclosures (bomas) where domestic animals are kept at night, which helps repel all sorts of predators. The strobe lights disorient the wildlife intruders and chase them away.
We have installed lights on almost 300 bomas and are constantly setting up more . The area of Piyaya needs 100 bomas done as soon as possible!!!
