Healthy wildlife populations depend on healthy communities.
Pride in Our Prides
In Northern Botswana lions are poisoned in retaliation for livestock killing. Our program is designed to help people learn about the local prides to increase their understanding and tolerance for living among them. We also help with ranch management, like building predator-proof livestock protection enclosures—specific to lions.
Wolf packs communicate their exclusive territories by scent marking and howling. By using these these marks, we plan to establish a 'biofence' to keep wolves out of high conflict areas in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. This method, a livestock protection tool, empowers local ranchers while allowing wolves to thrive.
Leopards Without Borders
Leopards are the most widely distributed cat species on the planet. As a result, they're most often in conflict with people. We have led the global assessment of leopard status for the World Conservation Union (IUCN) to establish the current status of the species and identify areas of conservation priority.
