Kafue National Park in Zambia used to be a crown jewel for African wildlife. Now, 200,000 snares set by poachers are removed each year. These snares kill lion prey and lions themselves. The lion population is only a sixth of what the park’s resources could support and their numbers are still declining. To counter this trend, Panthera, the Zambian Carnivore Programme, and Zambia's Department of National Parks & Wildlife (DNPW) have partnered up. They are collaring individual lions and tracking the, to determine the pride’s exact territory in which they are subsequently deploying anti-poaching patrols. It is meticulous work but, with so few lions left, it’s the best option to protect them.
