Carnivore Conservation Programme

Our purpose is to boldly prevent carnivore extinction in southern Africa.
Carnivores are one of the most charismatic yet threatened orders and require innovative strategies to ensure their survival. We boldly implement large-scale, collaborative, field-based projects to increase the range, numbers and status of Africa’s threatened carnivores. We achieve this by re-establishing, maintaining and expanding safe space for carnivores, actively reducing threats to carnivore survival and persistence, ensuring positive changes in human-based values to carnivores, and supporting legislation to protect carnivores. We should, we can, we do save carnivores.

We achieve this through the following projects:

• Growing Packs and Spots
• Conserving Kruger’s Carnivores Project
• Preserving Free-roaming Carnivores
• Empowering Communities to Conserve South Africa’s Threatened Wildlife
• Carnivore Genetic Health and Diversity
• Restoring Malawi’s Large Carnivore Guild

Target species:

• African Wild Dog
• Cheetah
• Lion
• Leopard
• Spotted Hyaena
