Eastern Central African Republic (CAR) represents one of the wildest places in Africa. Low human population densities and vast wilderness areas mean that there is significant long term potential for lion conservation. However, in recent years, wildlife and lion populations have been decimated through the activities of transhuman pastoralists. Since 2014, African Parks have been securing a vast block of Wilderness in the Chinko block of eastern CAR. The LRF issued its largest grant to date to help African Parks expand the area under protection and create a massive 50,000 km2 wilderness zone, by working with pastoralists to create transhumance corridors, thus keeping massive areas free of human interference.
