Abide - Acrylic

| /

In the golden embrace of a Maasai Mara kopje - a rocky outcrop that rises above the plain - a male lion finds repose amidst the crouton bushes, his majestic presence a silent tribute to the untamed beauty of Kenya. The sun casts a warm glow over the rugged terrain, illuminating the lion's regal mane as he rests with an air of dignified tranquility. The crouton bushes, resilient and protective with their natural insect deterrent, cradle the lion like a lush royal throne. 

Although lion's are known for their hunting skills and intense power, they are masters of rest, sleeping 16-20 hours a day. And they are social creatures who rely on the bonds of pride and family for protection and company. It's no wonder to me that lions are so intrinsically connected to the idea of God, a symbol of power and dominance, but also rest and connection. 


One of the significant threats to African lions is habitat fragmentation. As human populations expand and encroach upon lion territories, natural habitats become fragmented, leading to isolated populations. This fragmentation reduces the lions' access to prey, increases human-wildlife conflict, and limits their ability to roam freely. Conservation initiatives often focus on mitigating these effects through habitat preservation and corridors to connect fragmented areas.

Many successful lion conservation programs involve local communities. Recognizing the importance of coexistence, conservationists work with communities to develop sustainable practices that minimize conflict. This includes implementing livestock protection measures, promoting responsible tourism, and ensuring that communities benefit from the presence of lions through eco-tourism initiatives. By involving local residents in conservation efforts, there is a greater likelihood of fostering a harmonious relationship between humans and lions, ultimately contributing to the big cats' conservation.
