The heroes on the ground who save wild lions by helping local communities to better protect their livestock, prevent human-wildlife conflict and assist when incidences occur.
Community Coexistence Training
Reduce the incidences of poisoning in response to livestock loss by informing local communities about the human and livestock health risks of using poison. These trainings are run by The Peregrine Fund.
Collaring for Coexistence
Provides conservation livestock owners with real-time lion movement information from GPS collars via a mobile phone app and testing new technologies that protect livelihoods and lions.
Our Conservation Programmes
All aspects of our large carnivore conservation programmes are carried out in collaboration with one or more of our partners. Collaboration is central to the way we work, and programmes are designed and implemented with our partners from beginning to end.
Ruaha Carnivore Project
In Ruaha we work closely with local communities to effectively reduce human-carnivore conflict. This work will have vital benefits for both people and predators in this globally important landscape.
In Selous-Nyerere we work to establish a human-wildlife conflict mitigation programme and develop long-term monitoring programme for the ecosystem’s large carnivore populations.
A scalable and sustainable biodiversity conservation model, which links payment to local communities in return for long-term wildlife and habitat protection agreements. First project in Zambia.
