Jeneria is a warrior from Westgate Community Conservancy in Samburu.  Jeneria first joined Ewaso Lions in 2008 at just 19 years old. Since then, Jeneria has progressed from Lion Scout to Field Assistant, before assuming his current position of Field Operations and Community Manager in 2013. Jeneria’s knowledge of lion identification, ability to transform conflict, and exceptional relational skills are key to Ewaso Lions’ functioning. Recognizing his age-set was being neglected from conservation, Jeneria conceived Ewaso Lion’s flagship outreach program, Warrior Watch. He has since been responsible for engaging dozens of Samburu warriors in lion conservation, and together with his team, has stopped lions from being killed on hundreds of occasions. In 2015, Jeneria received two accolades: Disney’s Conservation Hero Award and Houston Zoo’s Wildlife Warrior Award.
