Community-based conservation

Community-based conservation

Community-based conservation represents a large part of Panthera’s conservation work in Africa. In addition to monitoring the movement patterns and population size of lion populations, Panthera’s field biologists also work closely with local pastoralists to train them how to properly build bomas (or corrals, made out of brush) that protect their livestock, including cattle, goats, and other animals, from predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, and wild dogs.
