The Greater Limpopo Carnivore Program is a conservation research initiative working in the Mozambican component of the Greater Limpopo Trans Frontier Conservation Area. Through scientifically sound research and direct conservation action the program strives to improve the conservation prospects for lions and other large carnivore populations in the region.

The Faceless Lions of Mozambique

To rescue the remaining lions of the Mozambican population the Greater Limpopo Carnivore Program is implementing a dedicated anti poaching team – the Limpopo Lion Protection Unit. With funding from National Geographic’s Big Cat Initiative we’ve secured major logistical support and with additional funding currently being sought, hope to deploy our first unit of locally employed rangers in September 2017.
