Project objectives

By the end of the project, the aim is to develop a prototype for how local communities themselves can achieve carnivore conservation and maintain landscape connectivity in a holistic manner. It also plans to improve conflict response and prevention, as well as increase the presence and community tolerance for lions, cheetahs, and wild dogs in the eight communities and 680’000 hectares covered by the project.

This project is implemented by South Rift Association of Landowners.
