Namibia Namibian Lion Trust 8.000 2022

The population of lions in the wild has declined dramatically in recent years. There are frequent human/animal conflicts. Fortunately, there is the Namibian Lion Trust that is committed to the lions around the Etosha National Park in Namibia. They are committed to reducing human/animal conflicts in that region. The lions sometimes grab livestock from farmers as prey. Because of this, the lion is not a popular animal with the farmers and it sometimes even causes farmers to kill the lions.

The Lion Guards of the Namibian Lion Trust help farmers repair fencing. Work is also being done on fences for the cattle at night, so that the animals are also safe from the lions. This organization also conducts research into the lions in the park. For example, they keep an eye on the population and use GPS collars to monitor the animals. Thanks to these GPS collars, local residents can be warned that a lion is nearby and they can help their livestock to safety.

Thanks in part to the support of DierenPark Amersfoort Wildlife Fund, the salaries of eight Lion Guards can be paid. Do you also think it is important to protect the lions? Support the DierenPark Amersfoort Wildlife Fund!
