One Bright Idea


Richard Turee from Kenya found a simple but  innovative solution that  prevents lions from killing livestock and humans. Richard, whose family lives within the Nairobi National Park boundaries, raises livestock. He grew up more or less hating lions since they are a threat to the livestock. But his views upon lions have changed and by studying their behaviour he  came up with an ingenious solution.

This solution may in hindsight look very simple, yet Richard had to find a solution that was cheap to install, effective, and did not harm the livestock or the lions. Watch the video to find out how this 11-year-old boy got the idea for Lion-B-Gone.
