From afar, it’s easy to get furious at the people who go to great lengths to kill innocent animals because they trespassed onto their land. There is no excuse for thoughtlessly murdering an innocent animal; however, in places where wild animals pose a threat to people’s crops livelihood’s, things aren’t always so cut and dry. In Kenya, lions are commonly targeted for the threat that they pose to livestock. Considering that the African lion population is highly endangered, many are working to reconcile human-wildlife conflict in a way that is mutually beneficial to people and animals.

Luckily, some people are coming up with ingenious solutions to this frustrating reality. One young man from Kenya, Richard Tuerre, came up with a brilliant idea to protect his land while simultaneously protecting endangered wildlife.

One morning, Richard discovered his family’s bull had been eaten by lions during the night. Richard was saddened, but also recognized how many lions are also killed as a result of farmers and Maasi warriors protecting their land.  As a “budding electronics whizz-kid,” he knew he had to come up with a solution.

Richard created a fence with moving lights that helps to deter wild animals from his land. These lights ward off wild animals without harming them physically or putting their lives in danger. Richard’s invention is an amazing example of animals and humans working in harmony to achieve what’s beneficial for both parties.

If you’re as amazed by Richard as we are, share this video and encourage others to learn more!
