Resolving conflict through the Ruaha Carnivore Project

In 2009 Dr Amy Dickman, Kaplan Research Fellow in Wild Felid Conservation at the University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU), set up the Ruaha Carnivore Project in Tanzania. Its aim is to address the conflict between the local community and the lion population. The project has had great success in reducing livestock attacks by 60% and carnivore killings by 80%. The project is also undertaking valuable work with the community.

Amy was recently shortlisted for a prestigious Tusk Conservation award, which recognises the impact of vital conservation work across Africa. Watch her nomination video to see her research in action.
