Darem the Lion Defender

RCP has developed a storybook about a boy called Darem from the Barabaig tribe, showing how he works with the project to help protect lions and other carnivores, thereby empowering his local community.

With text in both English and Swahili, this story is for children everywhere.  The book will be distributed freely to schools and families around Ruaha and beyond, raising awareness of RCP’s work to conserve carnivores in partnership with local communities.  It will be of particular significance to local people from the Barabaig tribe who are often marginalized and, to our knowledge, have never been featured in a storybook.

Written by Project Director Dr Amy Dickman, with beautiful illustrations by Kayla Harren, this is a heart-warming tale about a boy who loves lions which will enchant readers of all ages.  The book is available to purchase through the Tusk shop https://www.tusk.org/get-involved/tusk-shop/
