            North West Zimbabwe is a stronghold for lions, but the species is threatened by an array of issues in the area like human-lion conflict. The LRF has granted to WildCru to support their ‘Longshields’ program that is designed to help prevent livestock depredation in the areas adjacent to Hwange National Park and Matetsi Safari area. As a result, this will reduce retaliatory killing of lions by people. This program involves provisional support to livestock herders that will help them strengthen their cattle corrals, rapid response to incidences of conflict, monitoring of lions, subsequent early warning to villagers, and education on improved livestock husbandry.
