Mitigation of negative human impacts on large carnivore populations: Niassa National Reserve, Mozambique


- Niassa

The African lion is listed as vulnerable with an estimated 23 000 to 40 000 lions remaining in Africa (Nowell et al. 2006) while the African wild dog is considered endangered with less than 8000 individuals remaining (IUCN/SSC, in prep, 2008). As a result of the work of the Niassa Carnivore Project, NNR has been identified as a priority for both lion (2006; Nowell et al 2006) and African wild dog (IUCN/SSC, in prep, 2008) conservation in eastern and southern Africa. The lion population is believed to be one of only five lion populations left in Africa that is currently increasing.
