David Macdonald writes from Zimbabwe, where Andy Loveridge and he are planning the next phase of fieldwork on WildCRU’s lion project

October 27, 2015

We have had a lot of enquiries recently about the well-being of Cecil’s pride and their cubs. They’ve proved a bit elusive recently, but a few days ago the team tracked them down and, as the attached photo illustrates, all was very calm. These are exciting days for the project at Hwange as we plan the work schedule for for next year. In particular, in the next two days we are meeting with colleagues from the other KAZA countries, coordinating lion conservation between Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Angola.
