Simon Lima (former research technician, Mpala)
Simon Lima (pictured here after a trying stint in Tsavo National Park) was an invaluable member of our research team between 2004 and 2015. He is a guru with GPS, ungulate captures, and radio-telemetry, and he can spot giraffes at over 500 km (pun intended, to be sure). And he's the proud father of two of the cutest kids in Laikipia. He will be missed dearly.
