Predator Conservation AC
African Carnivore Project
The African carnivore species have recently suffered diminutions on their populations and this mostly related to habitat loss and poaching created by poverty and the increased human populations in Africa. To solve this problem, it is necessary to find programs to lessen poverty in Africa and to control poaching. In most African countries, wildlife is preserved just within national parks, game reserves, and private areas (South Africa).
However, to establish effective conservation programs on the African carnivore species, it is important to find out what is the actual status of these species’ populations in the wild.
Predator Conservation AC, is an international NGO that has worked doing ecology & population studies on wild carnivores in many parts of the world, including Africa.
