Why we need your help

Namibian Lion Trust

Lions Livestock and Livelihoods in a drought area is never an easy mix! Add in a worldwide pandemic with tourism at a standstill – so no jobs and income from tourists and life gets tough for the communities and for the Lion Guards.  

Please support the work of the Namibian Lion Trust for World Lion Day, your donations with help the school, the farmers and keep the lions safe. 

Working within the community lands and the Hobatere concession area on the Western Borders of Etosha the Namibian Lion Trust (formerly AfriCat North) is striving to mitigate the effects of Human Wildlife conflict. The loss of a key territorial male to a suspected poisoning after the pride killed a donkey who had roamed into the conservation area has been keenly felt.

The team are working hard to reduce the impact the lions have on the community and help the farmers to protect their remaining livestock. With gps collars on selelcted member of the pride the team know where the lions are and can alert farmers to their whereabouts. In May the team were successful at collaring another lion, an expensive process in time and money, but good news for the project.

The Onguta community school built by AfriCat North has been a great success but funds are still needed to complete the payment to the builders aptly called the Cowboys!

Your donation will make a huge difference to the team on the ground and pay for lion guards, the collaring process, transport and related operational costs. Thank you  For more information check out www.namibianliontrust.org  or contact AfriCat UK on info-uk@africat.org  or visit www.africat.co.uk
