Wildlife Conservation and Coexistence

Wildlife Conservation and Coexistence

Africa is home to the world’s greatest intact large mammal populations, but many critical species face increased threats from climate change, habitat loss and degradation, and conflict with people.

We work hand in hand with communities to advance current and new conservation solutions that reflect local needs and perspectives. Our efforts to reduce conflict, involve local people in conservation, and increase tolerance for coexistence will help prevent the catastrophic crisis of mass extinction.

HOW WE CONSERVE WILDLIFE AND PROMOTE COEXISTENCE

Engage Communities to Protect Lions and Other Big Cats

Together with local people, we conserve Tanzania's highly threatened lions, leopards, and cheetahs by addressing all primary threats to their long-term survival.

LivingWall

Reduce Human-Wildlife Conflict with Living Walls

Co-created with communities, Living Walls protect livestock at the homestead and in turn prevent revenge killing—a primary threat to lions in Tanzania. Living Walls also create greater peace and prosperity for rural families, which improves attitudes toward coexistence.

APW-Warriors-for-Wildlife

Promote Coexistence Through Warriors for Wildlife

As local ambassadors for conservation, Warriors for Wildlife provide rapid response to human-wildlife conflict events, rescue lost livestock, and offer ongoing dialogue and education to their respective communities about living with wildlife.

Preserve Essential Wildlife Habitat

We partner with communities to protect vast, open spaces that wildlife depend on. While Community Game Scouts conduct regular patrols to prevent illegal activity in the Tarangire ecosystem, our Sustainable Rangelands Initiative mobilizes local people to monitor and manage vital grasslands across northern Tanzania.

APW-Community-Game-Scout

Monitor and Track Key Wildlife Populations

To ensure that wildlife continues to benefit from our programs, Community Game Scouts conduct twice-monthly counts to monitor local species in targeted areas. For the past nine years, key herbivore populations have increased or remained stable.

“I decided to become a Warrior for Wildlife when I saw that big cats in our community areas were facing extinction. Now I help create peace between communities and wildlife.”
