Summary:
Adult lions are at the top of the food chain and have no natural enemies, except human beings. But for lions of Namibia, that enemy has become a huge problem. African farmers kill hundreds of them every year to protect their livestock. Now, a handful of determined conservationists are trying to ease the conflict by making it possible for humans and big cats to live in peaceful proximity at the southern margin of Etosha National Park, in northern Namibia.
