Less than 25,000 African lions survive in a handful of countries. Virtually nothing is known of their conservation status in Kenya, specifically in the north. This project seeks to determine their current distribution and relative abundance in an area of global conservation importance, and plan to provide continuous suitable habitat across neighboring countries (Tanzania, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa). A conservation strategy for African lions in Kenya will be developed from this information. Additionally, the project will develop technical skills of its local conservation counterparts, develop constructive relationships with local communities, and hopefully trigger conservation actions to protect this endangered carnivore and other wildlife in Kenya and across the continent. We work with local communities to provide conservation education, humanitarian relief programs, scholarships, and assist local schools, medical facilities, and water supply programs.
