THE MAASAI OLYMPICS

For centuries the Maasai have practiced a traditional rite of passage to manhood, hunting and killing lions.

 

There are now too many people and too few lions. Things needed to change. So we created an innovative conservation strategy, including the Maasai Olympics.

 

THIS IS THE HUNT FOR MEDALS, NOT LIONS
