There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Kope Lion
A delayed field update; in July 2018 we received a report of a big male lion on the NCA plains near the border of Serengeti National Park. To our surprise it was the now 8 years old Ngorongoro Crater-born lion MG106, aka “Hjalmar the Dreadful” (his mane often full of muddy dreads). The last time we saw him was many moons ago in the Crater, after he and his companion "Kijana" got ousted from the Lagunita pride by other males. Great news that Hjalmar had managed this risky trek 60 kilometres away from his home-place in the Crater, across the vast plains of the multiuse Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Impressive males like him make an attractive target for the traditional warriors. Finding Hjalmas here, relaxed and in great shape, supports the possibility for lions continued coexistence. We have not seen or heard of Hjalmar since, and we presume and hope that he is safe and well inside the Serengeti.

This lion, with his distinctive dark mane and belly hair, was recently spotted on our Panthera camera traps. His name is Kalamas and he is well known to the KopeLion team and local community. Recently, some Maasai women told of meeting him at Mt Lemakarot where he was drinking from a spring - he lay quietly and allowed them to collect water undisturbed. Kalamas travels widely, appearing intermittently on camera traps on the Lake Eyasi escarpment, Ngorongoro Highlands, and Kakesio (in the very south of the NCA) since 2015. In November 2015 he was observed mating in the Ngorongoro Crater. Whilst the KopeLion team are very keen to collar him, Kalamas in the Maa language means 'the intelligent and tricky one', given for his ability to evade us!

Daniel Rosengren: " Meet Snyggve, according to me, the most handsome male lion in Serengeti. He is the son of either C-boy or Hildur, a legendary pair of males made famous in the Aug 2013 issue of National Geographic, an article I'm very proud to be a part of. "





For sure he is beautiful...

Daniel Rosengren: " Meet C-boy, made world famous in a very popular National Geographic article (The Short Happy Life of a Serengeti Lion, written by @davidquammen , Aug 2013). He is a lion with a very interesting life story. Here he is demonstrating his immense power by dragging a fully grown wildebeest over the Serengeti plains. Many believe that male lions never hunt. That is not true, they do hunt, but females do it more often and are generally better at it. But, when it comes to big prey like buffaloes, the females often need the extra muscle power provided by the males. "
