Build a Boma

Livestock enclosures called bomas protect livestock and shield them from predators such as lions. They also protect lions from being killed by people anxious to keep their livestock safe. One boma fence costs $500 to build and $25 to maintain. Start a fund-raising campaign or make a donation to build a boma today.
