Meet National Geographic Student Expeditions expert Laly Lichtenfeld, a conservation biologist and National Geographic Big Cats Initiative grantee, who works with with Maasai communities in Northern Tanzania to build Living Walls out of trees. These walls offer dual protection: they keep lions out of Maasai settlements—which means safety for the Maasai and livestock—and also reduce retaliatory killings of lions. Learn more about her important work and then join Laly or her co-director Charles Trout on the Tanzania Expedition and help build a Living Wall for a local community.
