            Current literature states that there aren’t any lions in Sierra Leone, but in 2017 a camera trap caught a photo of a male lion in the southwestern region of the Outamba Kilimi National Park. Sarah Bell of Pan Verus Project received a grant from the Lion Recovery Fund (LRF) in order to do an exploratory camera trap survey of the national park. If this survey is successful in finding a resident group of lions, Sarah and her team plan to utilize this information to gain support from the national park, the Sierra Leonean government, and international organizations.
