Working alongside our partners, we are helping to conserve and safeguard lion populations in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Sudan.
Our initiatives primarily work to reduce human-wildlife conflict by promoting co-existence between people and lions. For example, to diminish the loss of livestock and pre-emptive or retaliatory killings of lions near Amboseli National Park, Kenya, we are constructing cost-effective predator-proof bomas.
We’re also collaborating with communities to encourage tolerance; by finding solutions to reduce conflict, our programmes highlight the benefits of co-existence to ensure the survival of lions, humans, and their livestock.
We’re working collaboratively with our partners to provide a focused programme, at grassroots level, to ensure the conservation and survival of wild lions.
Born Free’s ongoing initiatives work within communities to promote co-existence and facilitate people and wildlife living together more harmoniously.
Uniting with our partners, our dedicated efforts mean that we’re making great progress. To date, at least 2,500 people and 32,500 livestock are now better protected as a consequence of our predator-proof bomas programme. This is set to rise as we forge partnerships with African Wildlife Foundation and extend boma construction into West Kilimanjaro, adjacent to Amboseli, in Tanzania.
With your valued support we can boost our efforts – extending into new areas and working more widely – to address the causes of this crisis across Africa.
