Rwanda waits to heartily greet its new residents, five female and two male lions that have started their journey from South Africa on Monday and will soon arrive at the Akagera National Park in eastern Rwanda.
The wildlife officials informed that these seven lions will become the country's first lions after all of them perished in the aftermath of the 1994 devastating genocide.
Yamina Karitanyi, chief tourism officer at the Rwanda Development Board, asserted that the reintroduction of the lions will not only help restore the natural ecological balance in Rwanda, it will also enable the population of Rwanda to see one of Africa's five biggest wild animals in one of the world's most diverse national parks.
African Parks, an organization dedicated to the preservation of national parks, is partnering in the reintroduction of lions to the country. The organization informed that this is the first time that the Akagera National Park will host lions in 15 years.
Peter Fearnhead, CEO of African Parks, posted on the organization's website that the return of lions to Akagera is a conservation milestone for the park and the country. Fearnhead added that the African Parks has collaborated with the Rwandan Development Board in order to reintroduce one of the key species to the beautiful national park.
The African Parks officials informed that it is a win-win situation as the entry of five female lions and two males to Rwanda will boost the future reproductive potential and enhance social cohesion while it will ease the burden of two small reserves in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal that had a surplus of these regal creatures.
