Jonathan posted this, though for some reason it came as a lab note from me! Importantly though Jonathan has been selected for a National Geographic Early Career Grant. Congratulations, and Kudos to WASIMA and LCMO

Its so impressive that our campaign have continued in Mpimbwe, southern and started in the northern side of the park. With support from Rufford Small Grant in 2017 and Crowder Messersmith grants (2018) we have now managed to explore other areas where lion killing is still happening in western Tanzania. Our findings are now going to be worked out by National Geographic grant to expand operations around Ugalla ecosystem, Rukwa-Katavi and Mahale ecosystem and respective corridors. We are so excited for the new year 2019. With expansion efforts we believe lion hunting and lion dancing traditional practices stop. Our presence,our hope for the vulnerable lions.

AMAZING Jonathan, this is so exciting, and so fast! Yes, funds above budget can help fix up the car - that will get you more quickly and reliably to the research sites, and even better allow you to start visiting communities adjacent to other protected areas where a form of WASIMA may be welcome. Keep up the good work, and strength to you, Harriet Martha and the toto
