LION GUARDIANS | 29 Jan

NATURE TALKS | LION GUARDIANS

"Lion Guardians - A Short Story About Land, People + An Age-Old Enemy" is about the Barabaig Tribe who are slowly changing from Lion hunters to Lion Defenders.

Ray Lion B.jpg

Ray Foley and Cian Kearns travelled to the Ruaha area of central Tanzania in October 2018 to document a remarkable conservation collaboration between the local Barabaig tribe, Oxford University and Panthera.

Living next door to one of Africas largest lion populations presents major challenges to the pastoralist Barabaig tribe. Livestock and even people disappear in the dark of night. Over centuries lion hunting has emerged as a functional and deeply significant aspect of their culture.

Now the tribe have embarked on the once unthinkable journey of becoming guardians and defenders of their local lion populations. Young warriors are dissuaded from going on hunts, problems lions are tracked and managed and data enabling better human wildlife conflict mitigation is collected.

There are lessons to be learned from this story for anyone curious how to achieve positive change from a group whose best interests are not necessarily served by change. Come along and hear some the major achievements as well as the immense difficulties such a profound change in culture presents this remote African tribe.

Ray Foley is a photographer and works full time for an Irish environmental NGO. Cian Kearns is a freelance journalist with a focus is on socio-cultural issues. He is currently writing a Phd on Genocide Studies. This trip was made possible with a grant from the Simon Cumbers media fund.

These talks are free with 50 places on a first come basis. The talks will be held in Good Day Deli Garden Cafe, Cork City. Please access by coming to the Evergreen Street entrance of Nano Nagle Place from 6.30pm where you will be guided to the cafe.

Coffee + cake will be available for purchase between 6.30pm and 7pm before the talks begin. Parking is available in and around Evergreen Street - there is no on site parking available for these talks.

See you there!

Brunch at Good Day Deli + Gift A Native Tree 🌳🌿🌱🌳

Brunch at Good Day Deli + Gift A Native Tree 🌳🌿🌱🌳

Help us reach our aim to plant 400 trees with Hometree Moy hill community farm + Give a Gift to Nature this Christmas!

We are so excited to announce that we are partnering with Hometree to plant a tree per table over our busy brunches on Sunday 16 and Sun 23 Dec 🌳

You simply have brunch with us and we will gift a native tree on your behalf (see T+Cs below), with no additional costs to you.

Hometree is part of the inspiring Moy hill community farm Farm Initiative. They have 67 acres in Co Clare where they aim to plant 60,000 trees. Hometree are committed to planting trees to be enjoyed by all, humans and animals alike. Their motto is simple - #moretreesplease.

Hometree promise that the trees will not be sold or clear felled, instead just planting trees for the benefit of the natural environment + our future generations 🌳🌿🌱🌳

Their idea that we can create forests through commerce is totally aligned with our idea of protecting the natural environment with good food choices and conscious consumerism.

Help Good Day Deli reach our goal to plant 400 trees by brunching with us on Sundays in the run up to Christmas! If you’re up for it, you can also come and join us in Co. Clare and plant your tree on on Saturday 27 January!

As we all know, Christmas is a period of hyper consumerism with resulting impacts on natural resources. Let’s flip trend together + give back to nature!

We’d love to encourage other cafes and restaurants to join us on this project! If you are interested please contact clare@gooddaydeli.ie or hometreeireland@gmail.com for details.

http://www.hometree.ie/

T+C’s | Good Day Deli will plant a tree per receipt/table of two or more brunch menu items. As each tree will cost us €3 to plant, we will not be able to commit to planting a tree for a receipt for tea/coffee cakes etc. We appreciate your understanding!
