We work in partnership with local stakeholders to develop programmes that support people, lions, their prey and habitat.
Lion Landscapes was founded in April 2016 with the aim of addressing key challenges facing carnivore conservation today. In 2020 the Ruaha Carnivore Project merged with Lion Landscapes for even greater conservation impact. Our collaborative and adaptive approach strengthens conservation efforts to secure important landscapes for viable populations of large carnivores. We do this in three main ways:
Available resources for conservation are often used inefficiently due to a lack of collaboration between key stakeholders working in the same landscape. We develop programmes in partnership with government organisations, NGO’s, private enterprises, and local communities, to more efficiently achieve shared conservation goals.
Science and Data
Available resources are often allocated on the basis of emotional rather than data-based decisions. We provide science and data based support to large carnivore conservation and management by designing and implementing robust monitoring and scientific research programmes.
Lack of a sustainability in current conservation models; most wildlife areas do not create enough value (e.g. from toursim or other wildlife based income) to support local communities and and ongoing conservation efforts. Our partnerships programmes create innovative solutions with financial and ecological sustainability in mind.
