Northwest Lion Population Survey Report

Namibia’s Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism (MEFT) has endorsed the official report from the Northwest Lion Population Survey. This report is the culmination of more than two months of field work by 45 Lion Rangers and MEFT staff, and months of review and analysis by researchers to set a much-needed population baseline for free-ranging lions in northwest Namibia. By being endorsed by MEFT management, the results and recommendations from the survey become part official policy in terms of managing human-lion conflict on communal lands.

A complete copy of the report is available for download here. Thanks to all our supporters who helped ensure the successful completion of the population survey. The Community Conservation Fund of Namibia is particularly recognized for its leading role in supporting the survey.
