13 Year Old Finds a A Mutually Harmonous Solution For Lions And Cows in Kenya

With the ever dwindling count of lions in Africa one boy found a solution to keep both farmers and lions at an impasse. He started thinking up ways to scare away the lions. He tried everything from fires (which only seemed to help the lions) to scarecrows. Yet, the lions would find a way around because they “are very clever,” he says. Then he discovered they were scared of moving light. After taking apart his mother’s new radio (we don’t know what she had to say about that!), the young inventor rigged a few simple wires and light bulbs together to create a machine that would flash a series of lights, tricking the lions into thinking someone was walking around with a flashlight. The only thing he bought was a solar panel, which charges a battery that supplies power to the lights at night. He calls the system Lion Lights. Problem solved! One’s gotta figure that this is a temporary solution. They’re bound to eventually find that there’s no human at the other end of the flashing light.

I am big on education, animals, and nature. So following that sentence I think it's important to be smart and animals and nature bring clarity and a calmness to things. I am new to actually paying attention and having opinions. This has been building well for about the last year. :)
