Living With Lions in Namibia

When lions threaten his livestock, a Namibian farmer's first instinct might be to kill the big cats. But conservationists have brought attention to the benefits of wildlife preservation, which can include income from tourism and a rewarding sense of stewardship over lions and other animals. The impact of these changing attitudes is chronicled in the short film "The Guardians," from WWF and National Geographic grantee Andy Maser.
