I think that the Lion Guardians scheme is very intelligent, because with this new scheme The Maasai has gotten to protect lions, monitoring the lions and other carnivores and inform cattle herders when to avoid the areas where there are lions, so this is not only a benefit for the comunity also for the lions and other carnivores.

The Lion Guardians scheme is so good. They changed the Massai's thought effectively. I've admired them for what they've done.

The lion guardians are doing a very good job,teaching the animals not to be aggresive and the people not to kill them from fear.This sceme is such succesful,because it saved the lions and made a friendchip between them and humans.Great job!

My opinion about Lion Guardians is that Lion Guardians make an important job by protecting Lions and teaching people more about lions and why they shouldn't kill lions.
In the area I live I think that there is no conflicts between animals and humans because animals also live freely and there is not killings of wild animals as I think.

I believe the Lion Guardians scheme is doing an excellent job with lion's life. Another important point in giving to the new Massai's generation a culture of not to kill animals for be popular between theirs I'm completely agree with this.
Well, in my city exist problems with animals but in a different way, and many people don't see this very unusual or they simply don't pay attention in this issue. The problem are the dogs and cats that reproduce very often. Also my community look this like a play, and it shouldn't look fun.I really believe that a proper culture in the community is going to solve the issue, to prevent them from reproducing animals. It's a proud way to eliminate this problem.In my country the excessive quantity of cubs just are a problem later for the family and the cubs finish in the garbage or they are causing problem in the neighborhood.

I prefer the Lion Guardians scheme . Because they destroyed a hatred between people and lions. Thanks to this scheme people change their opinion about lions. There is not any problem with lions. Even I can say that We respect them!
