Uganda Carnivore Program
World Lion Day!
We have had a very busy several months of carnivore monitoring, school visits, community meetings, kraal building, and taking tourists out on research drives under Uganda Wildlife Authority’s lion experience program. We wanted to take a moment on World Lion Day to provide an update on some of the lions…
The 3 males of Sankara, Rawlings, and Brother are still in charge of the northern part of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Chuma and his brother do their best to avoid the coalition of 3 by fleeing to the outer edges of the park when Sankara & Brothers are in the Kasenyi area. However, Sankara & Brothers have discovered their hiding places, and there have been encounters between the two groups of males. One of these encounters resulted in the severe injury of Chuma’s brother. We did a medical intervention in order to treat his wounds, and he is doing OK as of now. However, it’s a difficult life for Chuma and Brother to avoid both the ruling male coalition as well as conflict with humans outside the core park area.
Elderly Bridget and Lena and their 5 sub adult offspring are also doing OK, although there were some challenging times during the recent dry spell. It’s also becoming increasingly difficult for the senior lionesses to hunt enough to feed everyone. Chuma has been observed mating with Bridget.
Finally, Kogere and her sister have had cubs! We think there are 6 in total, with the father(s) being Sankara & Bros. The cubs are kept well hidden in the thickets, so we have only caught glimpses of them so far.

MORNING UPDATE: 24th October 2016
TWINS BORN IN MGAHINGA GORILLA NATIONAL PARK
This year has so far been full of excitements in mountain gorilla conservation, with Uganda having births of baby mountain gorillas in her Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, and now another birth in her sister National Park called Mgahinga.
News has met the AUTO office of another birth of mountain gorillas, and in the communication we are informed that one of the females in Mgahinga's Nyakagezi family brought forth two adorable innocently looking twin gorillas. Yes mountain gorillas do give birth to twins, and this is one other confirmation.
A more detailed account of this birth is still being compiled and more information with more accurate photography will be shared at an appropriate time. This is a plus for conservation, a bonus for mountain gorilla lovers, and great news for tourism in Uganda.
Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is part of a larger ecosystem, the Virunga Conservation Area which includes two adjacent parks in Rwanda and Congo. Together with Bwindi, Mgahinga makes Uganda the prime destination for gorilla tracking safaris; giving Uganda a count of over half of the world's remaining population of mountain gorillas. Just another factor to confirm the name Pearl of Africa.
Book your gorilla safari to Uganda with one of our members and perhaps you could get an opportunity to see these newly born twins. See our members list here auto.or.ug/members
