Human-Wildlife Conflict Prevention

Human-Wildlife Conflict Prevention

Every day, lions and other large carnivores are killed as their habitats collide with expanding human communities. APW reduces conflict between people and wildlife through innovative solutions that balance science and technology with traditional knowledge.

Living Walls prevent human-wildlife conflict in northern Tanzania.

Living Walls

Living Walls are environmentally-friendly corrals that keep livestock safe from predators. To build a Living Wall, community members plant a circle of trees that serve as posts for chain-link fencing. As the trees grow, they add height to the wall and create an impenetrable barrier. Living Walls prevent livestock attacks by large carnivores with a 99% success rate.

Warriors for Wildlife

Warriors for Wildlife are community-led teams that prevent human-wildlife conflict across five programmatic areas. Team members guide the installation of Living Walls, collect real-time data about conflict events, and help locate lost livestock at pasture.

Northern Tanzania Big Cats Conservation Initiative

The Northern Tanzania Big Cats Conservation Initiative helps to preserve some of Tanzania’s most threatened big cat populations. Because lions, leopards, and cheetahs move widely outside of protected areas, community support is essential to saving these endangered species.
