Soysambu Boma

Bomas for Lions
Summary
<em>Edit Conservation Project/Cause</em> Soysambu Boma - Bomas for Lions | Linda Powell
Purpose/Mission: 
In 2022, i am focusing my support on contributing funds for a boma at Soysambu Conservancy in Kenya. The boma is a portable corral that protects cattle at night and supports the introduction of apex predators like lions. This contributes to a healthy ecosystem while minimizing human-wildlife conflicts.
Start/End Date: 
Saturday, 1 January, 2022 to Saturday, 31 December, 2022

Soysambu Conservancy is a cattle ranch and wildlife conservancy.  For many years, they have been constructing 'bomas' -- portable corrals that protect cattle at night and allow introduction of apex predators like lions. This reduces the impact of wildlife-human interactions on both parties and contributes to a healthy environment that includes wild and domestic animals.  This year, I am focusing my contributions on Soysambu to purchase a boma. I am also visiting Soysambu to see first-hand the impact of this conservation innovation.
