Niassa Lion’s vision has produced a unique protected area where lions and other carnivores can thrive with the full participation and support of the people who live alongside them in the Niassa National Reserve (NNR) in Mozambique.
Niassa Lion’s mission is to conserve lions and other large carnivores (leopards, spotted hyenas, and African wild dogs) in the vast NNR (16,000 ml2; 42,000 km2) in Mozambique. They work in collaboration with the Mozambican government, the Reserve Management Authority and local communities. NNR is vital for global wildlife conservation efforts, particularly for lions and African wild dogs. Lions, in particular, are in crisis throughout Africa.
