How We Help Save Them
- The Zoo provides training, salaries, equipment, and support for people in Africa saving lions.
- The Zoo provides support for Kenyan wildlife professionals to preform interventions to resolve human-lion conflicts and find solutions for humans to live alongside wild lions safely and peacefully.
- The Zoo provides support for Mozambiquan wildlife professionals to track wild lion movement patterns to inform future protection plans for the species.
Niassa Carnivore Project’s mission is to conserve lions and other large carnivores (leopards, spotted hyenas, and African wild dogs) in the vast NNR (16,000 ml2; 42,000 km2) in Mozambique. We work in collaboration with the Mozambican government, the Reserve Management Authority, and local communities. NNR is vital for global wildlife conservation efforts, particularly for lions and African wild dogs. Lions, in particular, are in crisis throughout Africa.
