Predator Proof Kraals Human Wildlife Conflict

  • Share this:

Overview

Namibia has faced extremely arid conditions in the North West for several years, and this drought situation has inevitably increased competition for resources and added to the pressure of human lion conflict in the area. The Conservation Travel Foundation has been instrumental in finding solutions to Human-Lion conflict which help to elevate the tourism value of lions and to contribute to the conservation of the species in North West Namibia, and a number of successful programmes to help reduce this conflict are already in place. However, there is still a need for additional support in and around the region to help reduce the impact of the erratic movement of lions caused by the continuing drought conditions. 

As part of this programme, CTF has initiated the construction of 15 predator proof kraals to protect livestock in the area against predation and to prevent the conflict this causes. This has been done in support of the collaborative efforts of the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism (MEFT), TOSCO and the Desert Lion Conservation Project, as well as the Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation (IRDNC) and the Namibia Lion Trust. This collaboration has taken place in alignment with the overall Human-Lion Conflict Management Plan for North West Namibia.
