            The bushmeat trade is the single greatest threat to wildlife in Zambia. LRF provided WCP with a grant to develop a focussed bushmeat program, designed to tackle the illegal and commercial trade in bushmeat. This threat affects lions both by reducing the prey on which they depend, and also by causing direct mortality of lions in snares. With LRF support, WCP will adopt a 3-pronged strategy to deal with this threat; involving a) intelligence-based anti-trafficking to disrupt trade in bushmeat; b) support for the judiciary when dealing with bushmeat-related crimes; c) demand-reduction campaigns.
