PRIDE is an alliance of wildlife scientists across Africa leading carnivore conservation projects that approach saving wildlife through community efforts.

Scientists estimate there are less than 30,000 lions left in Africa, half the number of 20 years ago, the biggest reasons for their decline being conflict with people and loss of habitat and prey due to human population growth. PRIDE provides a novel approach to deal with these complex issues by optimizing the transfer of knowledge and experience between projects and sites, so we can have greater impact over broader areas.

We share knowledge and experience in a structured and tactical way to develop joint concepts, we use joint efforts to achieve long-term funding which allows more time to focus on conservation in the field, and we enhance our leadership skills through customized approaches in both innovative technologies and traditional knowledge.

VULTURE POISONING IMPACT Information collected by the Ruaha Carnivore Project, Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) and WCS helps reveal the huge impact just one cow carcass, poisoned by pastoralists as retribution for its killing by lions, can have on the ecosystem. In this case, 62 animal deaths were recorded, but the total number is almost certainly much more. #SHARPPWCStz
