By the end of project, populations of Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, African Wild Dog, Giraffe, Zebra, and other ungulates in the IHZ will be increased. Poaching of elephants in the IPZ will be reduced by 50%. A total of 72 community members will be employed through the project (as Community Game Guards, park maintenance staff, etc.), or be actively engaged as business partners. And by the end of project, the project team will prepare a report on the steps for establishing a similar model in an adjacent community.
This project is a part of the IUCN SOS African Wildlife initiative, which is funded by the European Commission’s Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development (DG Devco) through its B4Life initiative.
